Official Charity for Chariots of Fire 2019

In 2019 Chariots of Fire, organised by Hewitson’s Charitable Trust, partnered with Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust (ACT). With your sponsorship, ACT is fundraising for a new specialist children’s ambulance service, dedicated to providing the highest level of care for the regions sickest children. This service will benefit on average 1,700 patients a year.

Adults and new-born babies in our region who need intensive care treatment for complex conditions are blue-lighted by a dedicated, specialist ambulance service to the most appropriate hospital. Surprisingly, there is no such service in our region that can specifically provide intensive care for critically ill children.

ACT are seeking support to raise the £108,000 necessary to get the new children’s ambulance service on the road. This would effectively provide an Intensive Care Unit on wheels to keep children alive during transfers, ensuring that they survive long enough to get to Addenbrooke’s. To donate please visit -

We kindly ask for all funds to be donated by 20th December 2020.
