magpas44   We’re delighted to announce that our chosen charity to support as part of the 2017 festival is Magpas Air Ambulance. This incredible Cambridgeshire-based organisation brings crucial lifesaving care by land and air to patients in life-threatening emergencies in the East of England and beyond. Some of the UK’s expert doctors and paramedics volunteer their own time to work with Magpas Air Ambulance and offer procedures and treatments at the scene which are usually only available in hospital. This means that the frontline care the team delivers doesn’t just save lives, it helps seriously ill and injured people return to a good quality of life. Magpas Air Ambulance is not a state-funded service and relies on generous public donations to continue saving lives. To support this life-saving East Anglian charity, the donations collected by our hardworking morris dancers over the festival weekend as they dance around the streets and green spaces of Ely will go to Magpas.
