Patient raises over £25,000

6 July, 2021

On Friday 2 July, just eight months after a high-speed road traffic collision, Minna , 20, completed a five-mile walk in aid of both us and Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance – the two Air Ambulance services who attended to her and her partner, Hugo, who tragically died in hospital as a result of his injuries.

With the original target set at £1,500, Minna has gone on to raise an incredible £25,307.

A huge thank you to Minna and everyone who supported her before and during her walk.

Before the walk Minna told us, “Had it not been for the Air Ambulance team, I certainly would have been left paralysed or very possibly died. My various internal injuries kept me hanging between life and death for the first few days, but thanks to the incredible Air Ambulance crew and the equally amazing team at University Hospital Southampton, my life was saved. I feel unbelievably grateful to the Air Ambulance team.”
