TWO VOLUNTEERS from Bromsgrove have been recognised for their efforts at the annual Midlands Air Ambulance Charity Awards.
Adam Lote and Jamie Bunting attended several events, clocking up more than 60 hours between them and won the evening’s Volunteer Award at The Vox Conference Centre in Birmingham last Friday.
The event, hosted by actor and TV personality Will Mellor and radio presenter Ed James, recognised aircrew, volunteers, fund-raisers and supporters for their hard work in the past 12 months.
Adam works as a West Midlands Ambulance Service paramedic and Jamie is a full time student at university, also volunteering as a response special constable for around 50 hours every month.
A host of famous faces at the celebration, including Paul Chuckle and Sally Bee, presented the awards before a live auction raised further funds for the charity.
The event will help fund 34 lifesaving air ambulance missions and 31 critical care car missions.
Emma Gray, the Midlands Air Ambulance’s fund-raising and marketing director, said: “Our recognition awards are a wonderful way to show our thanks to our supporters, aircrew and volunteers who have gone above and beyond over recent years.
She added both Adam and Jamie were fantastic examples of the charity’s next generation of volunteers.
“These awards go to both parties as a symbol of our appreciation for the hard work and passion they put in to the charity.”
