Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance now has over 100 volunteer supporters across the county with four recruits operating in Farnborough, Aldershot, Fleet and surrounding areas. The four volunteers are seen at the Thruxton base meeting two of the paramedics who fly on missions.

Volunteers are available to give talks about the Air Ambulance and will be attending events during the summer months to promote local knowledge about the Air Ambulance which is supported entirely by voluntary contributions. The volunteers all say that they enjoy the speaking and event activities that they undertake and are happy to support the service which is a vital life saving resource for the community, but which costs Â£4,000 per day to operate.
