London's Air Ambulance is one of our favourite charities.
Not only do we hugely admire the rapid and expert assistance that our city's flying A&E department provides to victims of serious injury at the scene, but we're also impressed when they unexpectedly land in an unfeasibly tight spot in the local park.
Although we think of them as a critical and invaluable emergency service, London's Air Ambulance — like its sister services across the country — is a charity that relies heavily on public donations.
To help focus on fundraising, the first National Air Ambulance Week will happen this year between 24-30 September and it's a piece of cake to support LAS. Simply wear red on Friday 28 September and donate at least £1.
Londonist Towers will be wearing red. We'll take photos to prove it and tweet them too, tagged #Red4LAA. Join us! Please show support for London's Air Ambulance.
