Charitable youngsters who had been beavering away to provide tea and cakes for cash raise almost £200 for London's Air Ambulance.
Beaver scouts from the 4th Ruislip Scout Group , led by Brunell 'Badger' Sweeney, have held a number of coffee mornings in the past to raise money for various charities.
This time they chose London's Air Ambulance, which is stationed overnight at RAF Northolt in West End Road, Ruislip and have raised £198.18 so far.
In 2013, the charity attended 1818 patient missions, 58 across the borough of Hillingdon.
Using a helicopter by day and rapid response cars by night, a doctor and paramedic team can be at a patient’s side within minutes, providing life-saving medical interventions, such as open chest surgery, blood transfusion and anaesthesia, at the roadside.
Just over 30 per cent of the call outs last year were for road traffic collisions, 27 per cent for falls from height, 23 per cent for stabbings and shootings and 16 per cent for other incidents including on the rail network and people drowning.
The charity hopes to buy a second helicopter so it can extend its daylight flying hours and fundraising like the Beavers coffee morning will help them get there.
