Charity Fun In The Forest

We attended the New Forest Show on the 25th of July, assisting Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance throughout the day.

Fancy yourself a surgeon in the making? Test your skills on the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance’s newest addition – Buddy the Giant Operation Table.

 

 

Buddy is a life-sized (and very unlucky!) patient who needs your help removing items from his body with the steadiest of hands. You can see him in action here.

To help support the charity, who were selected as our Charity of the Year 2017, Red Funnel fully funded the making of Buddy, and the Air Ambulance team have already welcomed him into the family!

To assist with the unveiling of the newest addition, we attended the New Forest Show on the 25th of July, aiding the charity throughout the day.

 

 

We had the chance to speak to visitors about our charity work and involvement with Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance, as well as help to raise extra funds through competitions.

Luckily, the weather was on our side and the day was a success, with Buddy raising over £150 alone!

 

 

Buddy will be showcased at charity events and will also be appearing at our terminals through-out the year.
