Over £2500 raised for the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity at VSCC Awards Dinner / AGM Weekend

A collection was made alongside the Club’s Annual Awards Dinner and AGM activities at the Hilton Warwick this past weekend, where Club Members, Marshals and guests generously donated more than £2500 to the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, recently named the Club’s nominated chosen charity.
It was another successful edition of the Club’s AGM weekend, which followed the popular format of recent years, with hundreds of Members and Marshals in attendance for both Friday’s Annual Awards Dinner and Saturday’s Marshals Dinner at the Hilton Warwick, alongside the vital business of the Annual General Meeting and Marshals Forum.
 
With renowned Historic motorsport personality, Ian Titchmarsh as the weekend’s compère, many of the Club’s 2016 winners were in attendance for Friday’s Annual Awards Dinner to receive prestigious Club event and annual trophies interspersed throughout the 3-course dinner. As is fast-becoming the custom, there was plenty of friendly rivalry on display, with representatives of Frazer Nash in particular again leading the cheers for their winners, as they again claimed the all-important Intermarque Trophy itself for the 2016 season.
 
The following evening we welcomed former BRDC Chairman Stuart Rolt as Guest of Honour for the Marshals’ Dinner, who gave a fascinating insight into the relationship between the famous British Racing Drivers’ Club and Silverstone, particularly in light of recent negotiations over the future of the British Grand Prix, whilst the Club’s celebrated Marshalling awards were also presented to last year’s winners.
 
Saturday morning’s AGM saw the confirmation of Geoff Smith as the Club’s new President, who takes over the reins from previous incumbent Tim Kneller following his 3-year tenure. The meeting proved another productive gathering with plenty of thought-provoking ideas and questions as to the future of the Club, whilst the results of the Committee Election were also announced with Tim Dutton re-elected alongside new Club Director Hamish McNinch, with Alan Couper standing down after his years of service.

The afternoon saw many of the Club’s regular Marshals attend the annual Forum, with safety on Trials amongst the hot topics discussed.

The Club would like to congratulate all candidates who took part this year and thank all those who came and made the weekend a success. We also extend our thanks to the team at Hilton Warwick, who looked after us so well.



About the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity (Registered Charity Number: 1143118):

http://www.vscc.co.uk/vsccMedia/19993.jpg
 
What do we do? The charity now responds to an average of 2,000 missions each year (approximately six per day) making Midlands air ambulance one of the longest established and busiest air ambulance operators in the UK.
 
In 2016, Midlands Air Ambulance Charity celebrates its Air25, 25th anniversary. Launched in May 1991 as ‘Air5’, the charity was one of the first air ambulance services in the country and had just one helicopter flying out of a temporary airbase five days a week. Now, the charity has three helicopters serving a population of six million people, and has responded to over 46,000 missions to date.
 
As part of its commitment to patient care Midlands Air Ambulance has extended its flying times from 7am until 9pm throughout the year. The service aims to introduce night operations to reach those who need urgent medical treatment during the hours of darkness.
 
The cost: Each year it costs in excess of £7 million just to keep the three charity helicopters operational. The charity receives no funding from the government or National Lottery so relies entirely on the support and generosity of local people and businesses.
 
The charity’s three aircraft each carry a crew comprising a pilot, two paramedics or flight doctors plus full life-support medical equipment.
