The Association of Air Ambulances (AAA) is delighted to announce that the new date of National Air Ambulance Week 2016 is Monday 19th to Sunday 25th September.
NAAW is an initiative created by the AAA and celebrates the work of local air ambulances, giving them a national voice and an opportunity to promote the work they do at a local level. This annual event is a regular feature on event calendars across the UK, with many air ambulance charities organising their own fundraising and awareness campaigns during this time.
The move, from the last week of September is strategic and forms part of a broader plan which culminates moving the date forward a further week in 2017 to its new permanent home.
Clive Dickin, National Director of the Association said: “NAAW is the annual event when all 20 charities across the UK celebrate and encourage support for air ambulances which are mainly funded by donations. With many investing funds to expand their operations to provide night HEMS missions, upgrading their aircraft or placing investment into the advanced education and training of their paramedics and doctors, there is no better way to show them your support.
“The change is a strategic decision allowing for a number of factors to be accommodated in our member’s plans; be it better weather, longer days and a less cluttered program of other national events.
“The move also coincides with a review and the identification of further improvements which will be announced later in 2016 and 2017. This is being driven by the Communications Subcommittee of the AAA before being approved by the Board.”
