Emma Baxter is one of our IW NHS Trust Volunteer Community First Responders (CFR). She is trained by the Isle of Wight NHS Trust Ambulance Service to attend certain types of emergency calls that occur in the area she lives. She reaches potential life threatening emergencies in the first vital minutes before our ambulance crew arrives.
Soon after becoming a CFR Emma’s Mother-in-law, Brother-in-law and her husband all needed the Air Ambulance. This is why Emma felt she needed to repay them in some way and decided to do a charity skydive!
Emma is also a mother to seven children who have all now grown up and she has six grandchildren. She has always cared for people and after changing her life by losing a significant amount of weight she found a new zest for life and thankfully became one of our amazing CFR’s so she could give something back to her community.
Emma is due to jump on 30th June 2018, please help her to raise her target of £375 or even beat it by pledging as much you can; every pound counts so please donate.
You can help Emma raise money for this great cause by donating directly to their fundraising page
JustGiving sends your donation straight to Hampshire & Isle of Wight Air Ambulance and automatically reclaims Gift Aid if you are a UK taxpayer, so your donation is worth even more.
Alternatively we do have a collection pot held in the IW NHS Trust Ambulance training room, at Unit 18 Barry Way, Newport if you are passing with your loose change. We are also happy to come and collect any money your area has gathered.
Thank you so much for your support!
