Midlands Air Ambulance Charity (MAAC) operates and funds three air ambulances covering six Midlands counties including Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Worcestershire and the West Midlands. Each year it costs in excess of £10 million to maintain the three aircraft and the provision of a lifesaving service. Each air ambulance mission costs an average of £2,500. Each critical care car or cardiac car mission costs £224 on average. The charity does not receive funding from the Government or National Lottery for its daily missions so relies entirely on the support and generosity of local people and businesses.

Lingen Davies Cancer Fund was founded in 1979 to raise funds to build and equip a new Radiotherapy Department at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital. For the first time, people with cancer in Shropshire and Mid Wales could receive their treatment and care locally. The charity has contributed £18 million to improve cancer services in the local area and we estimate that around 75,000 people have had their cancer treatment and care improved through the impact of the Lingen Davies Cancer Fund. Today we are still raising funds to be able to make a positive difference to lives affected by cancer.
