Sir Lee Pearson CBE

Paralympian Gold Dressage Medalist Sir Lee Pearson CBE is also indebted to the work of the air ambulance. Sir Lee was airlifted by the Midlands Air Ambulance following a serious fall from a horse near his home in rural Staffordshire.

Due to the very remote and rural location of where Lee was injured in the Staffordshire Moorlands, it was deemed inaccessible for a land ambulance to reach him. The Midlands Air Ambulance was dispatched and on scene in a matter of minutes.

Sir Lee Pearson CBE said, “The Midlands Air Ambulance does an amazing job for the general public saving lives, they receive no funding from the Government and rely on donations from the public. The riding and equestrian community in particular greatly values their work. I would urge people to visit the Midlands Air Ambulance website to learn more about the charity and how they can make a donation and a difference.”
