BRAVE young people who were given a helping hand by the Midlands Air Ambulance were treated to a Christmas party to remember.

The event at the service’s Strensham airbase, on Saturday (December 14), was designed to celebrate their courage following an array of accidents, some life-threatening.

The youngsters, aged from three to 12, were joined by their families and given the chance to meet the dedicated air crew who came to the rescue them.

Lee Pearson, air ambulance charity ambassador, was on hand to give a speech, Father Christmas paid a visit and an animal display from Weird n’ Wonderful guaranteed a fun-filled afternoon for those attending.

Julian Spiers, paramedic and air crew supervisor for Midlands Air Ambulance, said: “On average we airlift a child every four days, often in a life or death situation.

“It is remarkable to see how brave they are, which is why we wanted to recognise them by giving them a fun-filled party at our airbase.

“It is very rewarding for us as aircrew to meet former patients again, so the party was also very special for everyone at the service.”
