Our Charity Partner - Lucy Air Ambulance for Children
Our young, successful UK pizza chain is growing rapidly, so it felt like the right time to give back and we have chosen Lucy Air Ambulance for Children as our first-ever charity partner!
Lucy Air Ambulance for Children
Lucy Air Ambulance for Children www.lucyaac.org.uk is a national charity that ensures babies and critically ill children can access specialist treatment and care, wherever they are in the UK. Often the only way children can access specialist treatment or care is to travel between hospitals by aeroplane and Lucy AAC is the only charity in the UK that provides this unique service. Their air transfers provide lifechanging outcomes for children, including: children being discharged from long hospital stays, overcoming diseases like cancer, and receiving vital diagnosis with enables families to gain extra support.
This incredible service is not funded by the NHS. Instead, their small charity team work tirelessly to raise funds for every transfer. Due to current funding they are only able to fly 2 out of every 4 children that need their service – when we learnt this, we knew that we needed to partner with them.
