Government support for Cornwall Air Ambulance

The Chancellor has announced £36,000 of Libor funding for the Cornwall Air Ambulance.

George Eustice said “I am pleased that the Chancellor has announced £36,000 of Libor funding for the Cornwall Air Ambulance. I have been backing this bid. I can remember when the Cornwall Air Ambulance began in 1987. It was a great example of Cornwall's "one and all" approach because people in Cornwall really rallied behind the idea. It was the first air ambulance in the UK and now many other parts of the country have followed Cornwall's lead. Since 1987, it has completed more than 26,000 missions and saved many lives and it’s great that it now has this government support”.
