These annual showcases take place across the charity's six-county operating patch, offering a unique chance for visitors to understand more about the charity’s lifesaving work.

This includes touring the air ambulance helicopters and speaking with critical care clinicians who treat some of the region's most seriously injured patients.

The open day will run from 10am to 4pm.

The day will also feature interactive demonstrations of the aircrew showing their responses to real-life incidents.

Visitors can also expect a variety of food and artisan stalls giving plenty of choice for refreshments and products.

Emma Wood, head of fundraising and engagement for the charity, said: "Our open days aim to raise essential funds for our pre-hospital emergency service as well as raising awareness of the rapid response and lifesaving care our crew provide to local people every day.

"Our Tatenhill open day is a fantastic opportunity for people to see first-hand the work we do and to support our daily lifesaving missions."
