Mike Tindall MBE

Centre & Backs Coach at Gloucester RFU, is a former England Captain & 2003 World Cup Winner. His illustrious career as a professional rugby player has seen him secure an impressive 75 England caps and 285 club caps   for Bath and Gloucester. Commenting on his appointment as an ambassador he said;

“I have always been an advocate of the amazing work of the air ambulance charities and our military search and rescue services of the RAF and Royal Navy. Throughout my rugby career I have all too often been reminded of the potentially life threatening injuries that can occur on the rugby pitch. 

The Midlands Air Ambulance is particularly important for me to support as it serves the county of Gloucestershire where I live and play rugby. It is also vital that we support their life saving work, as it is the only local air ambulance aircraft of its type in the region that can land and airlift from the helipad at the Trauma unit of Gloucester Royal Hospital. It’s vitally important that we help raise awareness of this invaluable emergency service that really makes a difference and helps saves lives.”
