Supporters of London’s Air Ambulance at St Stephen’s Walbrook were joined by the Bishop for a celebrity Christmas carol concert in support of London’s Air Ambulance and its life-saving service.
BBC London presenter Victoria Hollins, actress Donna Air and Lady Moss, wife of the legendary British racing driver, each gave a reading, while the Hogan Lovells Choir, City of London School for Girls Choir and The Barts and The London’s Music Society led the musical celebration.
Delivering the sermon, the Bishop paid tribute to the charity and the vital work they do in the capital:
“Everyone in this church would want to pay tribute to the professionals who in default of wings arrive from the skies in a helicopter to bring their skill and hope to people in desperate and life threatening distress.”
London’s Air Ambulance is the charity that delivers an advanced trauma team to critically injured people. It was founded in 1989 and to date has treated over 32,000 critically injured people and attended most major incidents. It is currently fundraising for a second helicopter and extended daylight flying hours.
