The work of Air Ambulance Kent Surrey Sussex has been recognised at the Kent Charity Awards.
The team was presented with the ‘Judges Award for Contribution to Kent’ in special recognition of the charity’s work to save lives 24/7 across the county.
Commenting on the award, Lynne Harris, Executive Director – Charity at Air Ambulance Kent Surrey Sussex, said: “This year marks 30 years of providing pre-hospital emergency care, often in very difficult situations.
“We are very proud to serve Kent and this award is for every member of our team and everyone who makes what we do happen.
“As a charity we rely upon the wonderful support we receive from local residents and the work of our fundraisers and volunteers, without whom we wouldn’t be able to fly more than 2,500 missions a year and help save lives every day.”
The Air Ambulance team joined other charities and voluntary organisations operating across Kent at the awards hosted by ITV Meridian presenter Sangeeta Bhabra, and held at the Leas Cliff Hall, Folkestone.
