Former airlifted patient Kate Oliver is a great supporter of the Charity following her accident in 2010. Kate’s car accident resulted in severe head and chest injuries, and flat-lined twice before the Critical Care Team arrived on the air ambulance. Since the accident, Kate has become a great Volunteer and Fundraiser for the Charity and loves taking part in ‘A Very British Afternoon Tea’.

Kate’s top tip: Mix it up – don’t be afraid to add different ingredients to recipes to make them more to your taste!

Our sponsor, BerryWorld, kindly provided us with recipes to include in this year’s Fundraising Pack. We asked the crew to choose their favourites. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

Create your Crew

Can you create your very own crew? Buy or bake your very own gingerbread men and women, and decorate them to look like our team! Our pre-hospital care doctors wear a red flight suit, our Critical Care Paramedics wear a blacktop with red sleeves and red trousers, and our Pilots and Co-Pilots wear blue. Make sure to take a picture to show off your decorating skills and send it to us!

To find your nearest Days Bakery head over to their website. They have outlets in Buntingford, Hitchin, Letchworth, Royston, Standon, Baldock, Ashwell and Great Chesterford.
