The East Anglian Air Ambulance is to get a new helicopter after the Chancellor announced in today's Budget that a one-off grant would be given to the charity of £1.7 million.
The money is coming from the 'Libor Fines Fund' and is to be spent on all military and blue light causes. The Libor fines were levied on banks manipulating the London INterbank Offered Rate financial benchmark.
The money will help fund a second new EC145T2 helicopter to be based at Norwich Airport.
It will increase the charity's clinical capability and the distance it can cover. It's hoped the new helicopter will go into service in 2016.
"We are enormously grateful for this one-off grant from the Treasury that will help fund a second EC145T2 helicopter which will greatly enhance the lifesaving service we provide for local people. Our grant application to the Chancellor received cross-party support from all our Norfolk MPs. I would, however, like to say a special thank you to Chloe Smith MP and Henry Bellingham MP, both of whom worked closely with EAAA to secure this result.”
