Cornwall Air Ambulance is set to go head-to-head with a fellow air ambulance charity for its first ever charity football match.

Patients, paramedics and those with a connection to Cornwall Air Ambulance will join forces to take on the team from Thames Valley Air Ambulance.

The inaugural game, which will take place on Saturday 21 May 2022 at Troon AFCs Grouter Park, aims to raise money and awareness for the work of both lifesaving charities.

Team members include Scott Halliday who was airlifted in 2020 following a kitchen fire in St Ives and a member of the Boxall family, supporting the charity after a serious incident involving Olivia Boxall in 2019.

The opposition side, Thames Valley Air Ambulance FC (TVAA FC), was formed in 2017 to raise money in memory of four-year-old Barnaby, who sadly lost his life following a tragic incident in Thame, Oxfordshire.

Five years on TVAA FC are still playing charity football matches and have raised almost £40,000 for the Thames Valley Air Ambulance, which serves the people of Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Berkshire.

Ticket proceeds will be split 50/50 between Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust and Thames Valley Air Ambulance Trust. Please purchase your car parking tickets here, and be ready to show your email on arrival at Grouter Park.
