Your Captains’ Charities for 2022 are
Magpas Air Ambulance (Liam) and Starlight (Jacqui)
Magpas Air Ambulance bring the very best pre-hospital emergency care, in the air or on land, including treatments usually only available in a hospital. Our service operates 24/7 and, on average, answers four calls for help a day treating around 900 patients in life-threatening emergencies every year.
We serve the communities of Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and across the East of England and are dispatched by both the East of England and the East Midlands Ambulance Service Trusts – caring for a population of over 10 million.
The oldest emergency medical charity of its kind, since 1971 we’ve treated over 60,000 patients. Magpas Air Ambulance is not a state-funded service and relies on generous public donations to continue saving lives.
Starlight uses the power of play to make the experience of illness and treatment better for children and their families. Our passion takes us to the bedsides of some of the most poorly children in the UK. In hospital, often without hope of leaving. We create moments of escape from the difficult reality which seriously ill children find themselves. To delight and distract. To entertain and enlighten. But, most of all, to restore a smile to their faces. Making moments of light when the day is at its darkest.
