Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance crew awarded Queen’s Platinum Jubilee medal

To mark The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, a special commemorative medal has been awarded to serving frontline members of the police, fire, emergency services, prison services and the Armed Forces.

On Friday 12 November, Lord Lieutenant of Lincolnshire, Toby Dennis, presented the prestigious medals to Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance crew which included doctors, paramedics and pilots – all who provide advanced care to the people of Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire involved in life-threatening incidents every day.

After the ceremony, he said: “It has been wonderful to award the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee medals to such a dedicated team. The recipients are a rare and wholly deserving type of person. These medals are especially well deserved following the extraordinary resilience and courage of all the crew in treating countless patients during the pandemic.”

Acting as a token of the nation’s thanks, the Platinum Jubilee Medal follows a long history of awarding medals to mark Royal Jubilees, with the first one awarded to mark the 50th anniversary of Queen Victoria’s reign in 1887.

After receiving their medal, LNAA pilot Llewis Ingamells, Chief Pilot explained: “It was an honour to receive the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee medal; celebrating our achievements as a crew and commemorating this special occasion.”

LNAA Chief Executive Officer, Karen Jobling, shares her joy and said: “We are so happy to see our amazing doctors, paramedics and pilots included in the Queens Platinum Jubilee medals distribution, and thankful to The Lord Lieutenant, who is also our patron, for awarding the medals. Day after day, all our crew members serve our communities, treating patients in extreme life-threatening emergencies, 24/7.”
