A Cornish landmark is set to light up red to raise awareness of the lifesaving work of Cornwall Air Ambulance.

Air Ambulance Week 2023, which is running from 4th to 10th of September, is dedicated to raising awareness of air ambulance charities across the country and this year is delivering the vital message that ‘we can’t save lives without you’.

From 7pm to 11pm on Thursday 7th September, St Michael’s Mount in Marazion will be illuminated red to shine a light on the work carried out by Cornwall Air Ambulance.

Tim Bunting, chief executive at Cornwall Air Ambulance, said: “We are proud to be part of Air Ambulance Week, as we join with other charities across the country to highlight the specialist skills that we bring to the scene and to the patient. And we are delighted that the team at St Michael’s Mount are supporting the campaign by kindly lighting up the mount, in recognition of the lifesaving work carried out by the crew of paramedics, doctors and pilots. As your charity, for the people of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, we want to say a huge thank you for all your continued support. You help us save lives.”
