Royal Visitor at Midland Air Ambulance Charity Garden Party

We are thrilled to announce that Her Royal Highness The Countess of Wessex will attend Midlands Air Ambulance Charity 25th Anniversary Garden Party at Hagley Hall.

It couldn’t be more fitting that the anniversary is being held at the Hall as it was 25 years ago that the Charity celebrated its inception as ‘Air5’ when it was first launched from Hagley Hall 25 years ago in 1991. At the Garden Party, The Countess of Wessex will be greeted by the Lord Lieutenant for Worcestershire, Lt Col Patrick Holcroft, LVO OBE and will then be introduced to a number of invited guests who have made a significant difference to the charity over the last 25 years. Her Royal Highness will meet former patients, volunteers, fundraisers, aircrew, charity staff, trustees and corporate partners.

The Countess of Wessex will unveil a commemorative memento to honour 25 years of service by the charity, marking the very spot that the first air ambulance helicopter Air5 was launched from Hagley Hall in 1991.

Whilst the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity’s Garden Party is an invite-only event, you can still support the charity during the 25th anniversary celebrations.
