I was recently asked to photograph a very significant event in London for the Children's Air Ambulance and thought I'd share with you a few images from the night, where many high profile leaders from government, business, sport and entertainment enjoyed an evening at the Italian Embassy.
The reception was to commemorate the signing of the contract between the Children’s Air Ambulance and the Italian helicopter manufacturer Leonardo for the provision of two brand new AW169 Helicopters to commence service for the charity in January 2017. It represented a £32 million investment by the charity to provide a state of the art intensive care transfer and retrieval service for critically ill children in the UK. The only one of its kind in the country.
The evening was topped off with a performance by the 15 year old classical music rising star Katie Marshall who sung beautifully for the guests.
