Bing UK has handed over its homepage to The Jubilee Sailing Trust, a registered charity whose mission is to promote the integration of people of all physical abilities through the challenge and adventure of sailing tall ships on the open sea.
As part of their on-going charity initiative, Bing is featuring the Kent Surrey & Sussex Ambulance Trust this month.
It is a registered charity established to help sick and injured people in South East England and surrounding areas by providing a Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS). Responding swiftly to 999 calls, the Air Ambulance can deliver a highly skilled team of Specialist Doctors and Critical Care Paramedics to the patient at the scene. It costs £5 million per year to keep the service running; this money is raised almost entirely via voluntary donations.
