Poetic reflection on 30 life-saving years

Anthology celebrating Midlands Air Ambulance unveiled at special event at Birmingham Library 

Midlands Air Ambulance Charity marked its 30th anniversary by teaming up with the Word Association to create a celebratory and thought-provoking anthology of poems and creative writing. The book entitled On a Mission: 30 Years of Rapid Response, includes contributions from past patients, aircrew, volunteers and charity staff and was unveiled at an event at Birmingham Library, with many of the authors present. The book was funded by a National Lottery project grant from Arts Council England and printing of the hard copies was supported by solicitors’ firm, Irwin Mitchell.
