Hel�na Holt, chief executive of the Devon Air Ambulance Trust said: "We realised at the beginning of the year that this special date was one that it was important to keep in our diary.

"A day when we can highlight and put to the forefront the positive work that not only the Devon Air Ambulance does, but also the essential work of our fellow emergency services colleagues.

"Of course the Devon Air Ambulance is as unique as the date, because although operated as part of the emergency services, we are funded directly by the people and businesses of Devon that we are here to help."
