Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, Thames Valley Air Ambulance has continued to provide its critical care service across Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire.
Following the latest government announcement, our headquarters in Stokenchurch is closed for everything except for essential tasks that cannot be carried out remotely.
As we begin another national lockdown, we urge people to follow the government advice to help control infection rates and reduce the risk of overwhelming hospitals and other health services. We’re also asking people to be extra careful where possible, for example if you must be out on the roads or doing DIY. We don’t want anyone to need our services but when they do, we want to assure you that we are continuing to provide our usual service.
We really miss being able to work with our volunteers, supporters and wider community in the way that we would like. However, the community that we serve have been truly incredible in supporting us in these challenging times as the way we fundraise has adapted to the ongoing crisis.
Although we miss face-to-face contact, there are still many ways to stay involved. Please do stay connected by signing up to our e-newsletter or via our social media channels: Twitter; Facebook; Instagram; and LinkedIn.
Our fundraising team will continue to support activities as much as possible, within prevailing guidelines. We are constantly monitoring the situation and Government guidelines and adapting what we do accordingly. The safety of our communities, supporters and staff will always come first.
Your generosity and determination continue to amaze and inspire us and we are so grateful. It is only because of your continued support that we are able to provide the crucial service that we do – thank you.
Chief Executive, Thames Valley Air Ambulance
