Banham Security Renews their on-going support to London’s Air Ambulance Charity with new 3-Year Partnership

After a decade of close partnership with Banham’s Foundation, London’s Air Ambulance Charity is proud to extend its partnership with Banham Security for a further three years.

This renewed collaboration solidifies the two organisations’ shared commitment to the life-saving work of the charity and promises to further enhance the vital services provided to the people of London.

The longstanding partnership with Banham Security, which began through their Charitable Foundation in November 2012, has been instrumental in empowering London's Air Ambulance Charity to deliver rapid medical care to those in urgent need. 

The cornerstone of this support is Banham Security's sponsorship of the six rapid response cars operated by the charity. The cars are equipped with the same cutting-edge medical equipment as the helicopters, ensuring that the medics can get across London to the patient in the shortest amount of time possible. As with the teams aboard the aircraft, the cars bring the hospital to the patient, with clinicians treating patients at the roadside and conducting life-saving medical interventions in an out-of-hospital context.   

The long-standing support from Banham  has contributed to providing urgent care to thousands ofmissions across the capital and helped the Charity to access daily critical roadside incidents.

In celebration of the renewed partnership with Banham Security, Banham board members visited London's Air Ambulance Charity's helipad, situated on the 17th floor of the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel. The visit provided an opportunity for Banham representatives to meet with the pilots, medics, and charity leadership of London’s Air Ambulance, as well as to see the new fleet of rapid response cars.


Charles Hallatt, Executive Chairman at Banham said:

“Banham are immensely proud to announce our renewed 3-yearpartnership with London’s Air Ambulance Charity. The Charity’s rapid response vehicles are intrinsically linked to the core of our ethos at Banham – protecting people and providing urgent and immediate response when most needed. We are proud to have supported the Charity for over a decade, enabling them to continue to provide critical roadside care throughout the Capital.

We very much look forward to extending our support for another three years and together, we can continue to save lives and make a difference across London.”

Jonathan Jenkins, CEO, London’s Air Ambulance Charity said:

“As a charity focused on fundraising every year, the value of a long-term partnership like this cannot be overstated. Banham have been working with us for over a decade now and I’m delighted to have them on board for another three years.

It can be easy to forget that support like Banham’s has a direct and tangible effect on the work of our teams day-to-day – work that simply wouldn’t be possible without their backing.

I’d like to pass on my sincere thanks to everyone at Banham Security who have helped make this partnership such a success over the years.“
