A group of Year 5 girls from Babington House School, led by Sophie Williams, raised money for London Air Ambulance (HEMS) by organising a 'cake sale'.
Sophie explains, "I chose London Air Ambulance because a couple of years ago, my Dad got knocked off his bike and has to go to hospital immediately. He was taken in the helicopter. He had lots of x-rays and the doctors found out my Dad had only broken his shoulder and had a big bang to his head. He recovered fully and is now back on his bike. I was really happy that the air ambulance saved my Dad because without them he would have been in danger".
Sophie, her Mum and her friends baked endlessly and made about 200 cakes which they sold in school and made over £500.
As a thank you to the girls, London Air Ambulance kindly invited them to visit the Helipad. On behalf of Babington House, the girls presented London Air Ambulance with a large cheque and they were delighted!
It was a fantastic opportunity for the girls; they had a wonderful time experiencing the helicopter taking off and landing on the Helipad. They even brought a casualty to the helipad!
Babington House Chamber Choir will be supporting London Air Ambulance (HEMS) by singing Christmas Carols and fundraising in the Glades Shopping Centre in Bromley.
