Air Ambulance is a more than worthy cause which has been called upon in the past (thankfully not often) when there has been a racing accident.

Most recently it would have been Logan Fowler who at just 18 was involved in a racing accident at Appleby in May 2015. The Air Ambulance attended and transported him to hospital. After a few operations, he has healed and was back in sulky after a year out. This thanks to the swift response of the Air Ambulance team.
