The Flight Before Christmas ‘Twas the flight before Christmas And at the airbase The roters were whirring - The crew had to race. The heli, it glimmered In its smart suit of red As it lifted them clear, Then away they all sped. While down on the roads Through the chill winter air They saw folk driving home To show loved ones their care. In hamlets and villages, Cities and towns, All were preparing For the festive wind-down. The crew had called home, Wished their families goodnight; They had to stay, ready For a Christmas night flight… Then the phone had rung, An emergency mission; The pilot had sprang To fire the ignition. The team were all suited In red kit and gear, Their skills at the ready - Their mission was clear. So across winter skies, The air ambulance flew - A pilot, a doctor And paramedic too. To the aid of the patient Whose family waited, Eyes turned to the heavens, Tense, their breath bated. Swift and yet steady The crew they descended, Bringing life-saving care To the patient they tended. It’s thanks to you, our supporters, That we can attend The patients that need us: On you, we depend. We’re not just for Christmas: We’ll always be there. In times of uncertainty, We’re there to care.
