Outstanding Achievement Award for MAAC Volunteer

One of the many unsung heroes of the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity scooped an award the West Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Trust Excellence in the Community Awards, an illustrious ceremony to honour members of the public who’ve gone the extra mile.

Nikita Davis picked up an Outstanding Achievement Award at the West Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Trust Excellence in the Community Awards for her dedication and commitment as a volunteer with MAAC.

The 21-year-old is one of the familiar faces at the charity’s retail store in Wellington, Telford, where she supports the manager and greets all comers with her cheery manner.

Her hard work was recognised at the event, sponsored by Cardiac Science and Ferno UK which was held at Walsall Football Club. The evening recognised the efforts of Community First Responders, St John Ambulance, other emergency services and other voluntary organisations, businesses and individuals.

The quick-thinking and bravery of Steven Mitchell, Julian Spiers and Capt. Richard Steele among many others was also celebrated after they all played a huge part at the scene of emergency situations.
