London’s Air Ambulance is urging Londoners to donate to the charity, after treating at least 17 patients in Bromley so far this year.
The charity, which provides care across London, helped more than 900 people across the capital in the first six months of 2016.
On average, the charity performs eight open heart surgeries a month.
The latest appeal comes on National Air Ambulance Week.
Following the service’s hard work so far this year, the mayor of London has called on people to lend their support to the life-saving charity.
“London’s Air Ambulance does an incredible job of providing life-saving support to those in trouble across the capital every day. National Air Ambulance Week is an opportunity to celebrate the crews across the country, who work tirelessly to provide this service” said Sadiq Khan.
“There’s lots of fun activities happening across the capital and I urge Londoners to get involved, donate and support the doctors, paramedics, pilots and staff at the coalface of emergency care.”
Interim CEO of London’s Air Ambulance, Charles Newitt, added: “We want everyone in London to know that we are there for them, should they need our help and that as a charity we can’t operate without the donations of those that live and work in London.”
