Rich running the London Marathon

Rich Company, HEMS paramedic, has won the one place that the South Central Ambulance Charity was able to secure in the 2017 Virgin Money London Marathon. Rich has worked for SCAS for 11 years, and has been based at RAF Benson since 2011. He splits his time between manning the HEMS desk in our Emergency Control Centre, and flying missions with the Thames Valley Air Ambulance . Rich has already run 6 marathons, but has never managed to get one of the coveted places in the Virgin Money London Marathon – so when we asked  SCAS staff to step up and bid for the charity place , and to raise money for our own charity, Rich was first in line.

Rich has pledged to raise at least £800 – but he is going to need your help. If you can sponsor Rich, or your team can do something to raise funds to support him, please either go straight to his Virgin Money giving page and make a donation, or contact the charity for more information by emailing
