Can you make a song and dance about helping the Essex and Herts Air Ambulance in Hitchin this bank holiday weekend?

Do you have a talent which could help the Essex and Herts Air Ambulance Trust at a fundraising event this summer?

The life-saving charity is looking for musicians, dancers, comedians or other entertainers to fill three 10-minute slots at their Acrobatic Day at Hitchin Market on August 26.

To be in with a chance of peforming at the event, which will also see acrobats wowing the crowds with spectacular stunt performances, email an example of your work to communications@ehaat.org by August 20.

It costs £500,000 every month to keep the air ambulance service operational and the charity receives no direct funding from the Government or National Lottery.

Each team consists of two pilots, a pre-hospital care doctor and a critical care paramedic, who last year tended to 1,077 patients.
