Actor and television personality Will Mellor and local radio legend Ed James, have been announced as co-hosts of Midlands Air Ambulance Charity’s Recognition Awards and Charity Ball, and they are inviting you to join them in the night of celebration.

On the night, guests will be treated to a drinks reception, award winning three course dinner, live entertainment and opportunities to win a variety of money can’t buy prizes.
Will Mellor, who attended last year’s awards to present an auction prize, said: “I’m really pleased to have been asked back, and this time to present these fantastic awards. Last year was a wonderful opportunity to find out about the amazing support of Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, and it’s clear that everyone involved in the work of the charity is massively passionate about it.
“I look forward to seeing who’s honoured this year, and hopefully we’ll smash last year’s fundraising target of over £130,000.”
