Essex and Herts Air Ambulance has revealed it's been given a major financial boost.

£1.5 million has been awarded by the Government to the charity, after it successfully applied for funding.

It's going to use the funds to help pay for a planned new airbase at North Weald, which is estimated will cost around £4 million in total.

A planning application for EHAAT’s new Airbase at North Weald was submitted to Epping Forest District Council last December and a decision is expected shortly.

Jane Gurney, Chief Executive Officer of EHAAT said:

“We are delighted to receive this contribution from Government.

“It will mean that some of the funds initially put aside for our new premises at North Weald can now be used to help develop and improve the life-saving service we provide for patients.

“We value the support of the communities we serve and are thankful for their continued support.”
