New Placement at Air Ambulances Charity

Grays are delighted to announce the successful placement of Liz Campbell as Independent Chair of the Association of Air Ambulances Charity (AAAC). The AAAC is a legally independent body which is designed to funnel national donations into individual air ambulance charities.

Liz replaces Chloe Smith MP; the interim Independent Chair of the AAAC and brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the role. Her achievements and leadership has seen Liz become the Director of Wellbeing of Women; a medical research charity that has just celebrated its 50th year, Chairman and Vice Chairman of Surrey Police Authority and a Non-Executive Director of the NHS to name a few. She will now play a key role in leading the AAAC along with its Board of Trustees.

Chloe Smith, MP, stated:

“The Association of Air Ambulances Charity is a vehicle which allows air ambulance charities to approach national or large regional organisations who may want to make donations to the air ambulance sector as a whole. The formation of the charity was a key element of securing £5 million of LIBOR money and is already being used to enhance air ambulances at a local level."

“I am delighted with Liz’s appointment and trust that with her guidance and direction, air ambulance charities across the UK will see the benefit of the AAAC and use any funds raised to further enhance the service for the benefit of the patients they serve.”

Liz Campbell said:

“I am honoured to be appointed to this exciting role. I look forward to supporting the amazing work of the UK air ambulance community.”

Liz will be present at the All Party Parliamentary Group for Air Ambulances reception which takes place at the House of Commons on 26 October 2015.
