Sacrifice for the Greater Good
09th Oct 2020
As we now face the predicted second wave of the Coronavirus pandemic there is much to reflect on and learn from as we consider how to navigate the continuing complexity of this little-understood and highly contagious pandemic. We must balance the fear and uncertainty of the repercussions of the second wave, both on our health and wellbeing and also on our financial security and prosperity, with continued hope and optimism that we are reaching ever closer to a vaccine at some point in 2021.

A year like no other

This week, I am reflecting on my first year as CEO of Air Ambulance Kent Surrey Sussex. And it has been a year like no other, with the unprecedented devastation of the Coronavirus pandemic on our world, our communities and our very way of life.

Prioritising our Personal Wellbeing
19th Jun 2020
Over the past few months I have seen how important it is to give ourselves permission to make our personal wellbeing a priority. To allow ourselves to put our 'oxygen mask' before reaching out to others. Let’s encourage each other to prioritise our personal wellbeing in the same way we prioritise the wellbeing of our loved ones.
The Selfless Act of Giving

Last week marked Volunteers’ Week, where charities rightly expressed their humble gratitude for the incredibly significant impact that volunteers have on the sector and in supporting charities to achieve their purpose.

Thanking our Incredible Volunteers
01st Jun 2020
As a nation, we have been witness to the power of volunteering in reaction to the Coronavirus pandemic. Many thousands of people have given up their time and energy to help others, to ensure those most vulnerable and isolated remain connected and supported. We have come together to volunteer, to care, to help and we should all be so very grateful and thankful for this incredible outpouring of support. The last few months have taught us the importance of connection, and the resilience and creativity of individuals to be there for others.
