Bremont founders become ambassadors for The Air Ambulance Service
Bremont co-founders Nick and Giles English have been named as ambassadors for The Air Ambulance Service.
The owners of the luxury watch brand have also committed to raising enough funds for The Children’s Air Ambulance, one of three services operated by the charity, to pay for a new pilot for a year.
Giles English said: “The Air Ambulance is a charity that is very close to our hearts, both Nick and I have had our lives saved by them and the work they do is invaluable. With no government support we need to do as much as we can to help them keep up their great work and increase their service.”
The two brothers owe a considerable amount of gratitude to another of the services run by TAAS. Giles was involved in an aircraft crash in 2013 whilst suffering an engine failure flying his 1930 DH60 Gipsy Moth. He and his passenger suffered major injuries and were rushed to hospital by Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance.
In addition, Nick English sustained multiple injuries in 1995 when he had a crash practising for an air display in a 1945 Harvard. He was flying with his father Euan who was tragically killed in the crash but Nick survived after being transported to hospital by an air ambulance service.
Tracy Grunwell, national partnerships manager for The Children’s Air Ambulance, said: “I am delighted that Bremont has chosen to support TCAA, I look forward to working with Bremont on many fantastic adventures so that they can reach their fundraising target. Our charity receives no government funding, and is reliant on voluntary donations and corporate partnerships just like this one, so we’re extremely grateful to have Bremont on board.”
