Vote for change, vote Lord Combustion Services

June 16, 2024

Our friends at Lord Combustion Services are in the running for an award in recognition of its support for a lifesaving charity service – and they need your vote to win!

Lord funded a new Toyota Yaris for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity earlier this year so the pre-hospital organisation can continue to receive blood and blood products for its lifesaving service.

The charity will honour partners at its Recognition Awards and Charity Ball which is taking place on Friday 27th September. Ahead of the big night, the charity is holding a public vote with Lord Combustion Services in the running for the Corporate Partnership Award.

Each year, Midlands Air Ambulance Charity recognises its aircrew, supporters, fundraisers, volunteers and corporate partners at its awards evening.

The Corporate Partnership Award is awarded to an organisation which has demonstrated hard work, initiative and commitment through its CSR policy to raise awareness and vital donations for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity.

With voting now open, you can cast your vote up until 4pm on Friday June 28th via this link: The nominees with the most votes will be named as finalists and put through to a final judging panel stage.

Stuart Smith, managing director for Lord Combustion Services, added: “We are very proud to have supported Midlands Air Ambulance Charity with this vital service so we hope all our partners, customers and supporters will get behind our efforts by voting in this poll.

“With the General Election dominating the headlines, we hope you will see that a vote for Lord Combustion Services will make a big difference in recognising not only our support but also the vital work carried out by the volunteers who use the car to deliver blood and blood products.”

Midlands Air Ambulance Charity has been carrying blood on-board its three aircraft and fleet of critical care cars since 2017 so the critical care paramedics and doctors are able to administer blood at the scene of an incident to give patients in critical need the very best chance of survival and a good recovery. Previously volunteers conveyed the blood via a not-for-profit service but with this transportation method is no longer available for the Strensham airbase, Lord Combustion Services stepped in and supported this vital component of the charity’s operations.

The new Toyota Yaris operates alternate nights, conveying the blood between the Blood Bank at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham and Midlands Air Ambulance Charity’s Strensham airbase on the Worcestershire / Gloucestershire border. To ensure there is no wastage, unused blood products will be returned to the Blood Bank well before an expiration date.

Lord Combustion Services is a long-term supporter of Midlands Air Ambulance Charity having last year contributed equivalent to the funds for three air ambulance missions and five missions in the critical cars through donations made at a dinner held to celebrate the company’s 40th anniversary.
