July marked a record breaking month for the crew of the Thames Valley and Chiltern Air Ambulance, who flew out to an incredible 111 emergencies.
The charity, which began in 1999, has now flown over 14,500 missions across Berkshire, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire.
The air ambulance has recently extended their available flying hours and added a doctor led crew to their services.
Sarah Williamson, head of fundraising at the charity, said: "July saw an increase of almost 40 per cent on the average monthly mission figures, with road traffic collisions accounting for our highest volume of shouts.
"I would like to say on behalf of the charity, the air crew and of course the patients a huge thank you to everyone that supports us."
