Help Holly' Christmas Campaign

Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust

Our 'Help Holly' Christmas animation shared the moving true story of a young girl called Holly who was involved in a serious road traffic collision before Christmas a few years ago.

Thanks to the quick response of our Cornwall Air Ambulance Critical Care crew, Holly was able to receive life saving help, enabling her to get home to her family just before Christmas. The powerful animation showcases the response of the crew, Holly's journey from roadside collision to hospital -and included some stunning Cornish coastal scenes and an encounter with Father Christmas which helped to bring the festive animation to life. Alongside the stunning animation which was produced by a local Cornish company, Cornwall Air Ambulance worked with BAFTA winning composer and supporter of the charity, Ben Bartlett who produced an amazing soundtrack 'Blades in the Sky' which was recorded with choirs from across Cornwall - and even included the main voice of a young airlifted patient (and talented vocalist) who was rescued some years ago in a sea incident near Newquay. The response to the campaign was phenomenal, reaching millions of people (including national TV), and raising the most money ever from a single Cornwall Air Ambulance campaign.
