Westcroft Park Polo Club in Chobham will be holding the inaugural Surrey Hills Summer Cup Family Fun Day on Sunday 23 August. The event will be in aid of the Surrey Air Ambulance.
Surrey Air Ambulance exists to relieve sick and injured people in the South East of England by providing a Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) and Air Ambulance Service. The Kent Air Ambulance Trust was established in 1989 to provide an air ambulance service for the people of Kent. 2005 saw the introduction of doctors on board, and in 2007, the Trust expanded its service and launched a second helicopter to cover the counties of Surrey and Sussex.
The Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance Trust’s (KSSAAT) state of the art Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) aircraft operates 365 days a year out of bases in Kent and Surrey and are capable of delivering crews anywhere in the region in under 20 minutes flying time. Occasionally weather prevents the aircraft flying, so the crews also have rapid response vehicles to maximise their availability. Each aircraft is crewed by at least one experienced pilot and a minimum of one doctor and one paramedic who are trained in advanced pre-hospital care. This gives them the knowledge and skills necessary to assess and stabilise critically ill and injured adults and children. This means that a number of specialist clinical procedures that are normally only available in the resuscitation area of an emergency department can be delivered to patients at the scene.
Westcroft Park Polo Club is based in Chobham and holds polo events and tournaments throughout the year. To keep up to date with this and other events visit their Facebook page. The gates are always open to spectators and apart from charity events, there is no entry fee for spectators. For further info contact email@example.com.
The Club is working closely with the Chobham Business Association who will be supporting the day with an array of different local businesses and shops from across Surrey exhibiting. There will be specialised fundraising activities, including a silent auction, traditional fair ground, dog show, face painting and numerous bouncy castles.
The day will commence at 10am with the subsidiary finals and the finals for the Surrey Hills Summer Cup will be played at 1pm and 3pm.
Tickets can be purchased on the gate £15.00 per car and £5.00 per person on foot.
