The Winifred Jean Burge Foundation

Update posted by Gary Adams On Jul 13, 2017

Hi guys,

Introducing Wings2fly, part of the Winifred Jean Burge Foundation. This unique Ambulance Service is designed to make the last Wishes Of Terminally ill People become a reality.

Wings2fly was founded in July 2017, after Paramedic Gary Adams, founder of The Winifred Jean Burge Foundation, was called to attend an emergency involving an acutely unwell patient suffering with the effects of Motor neurone disease. Being a first responder on a Rapid response vehicle, the patient was quickly treated and the decision was made to transport the patient back to the local Macmillan unit, having not had much experience dealing with MND in the past, it soon became apparent just how vulnerable and reliant on others, people suffering with a condition requiring palliative care can become.

The Foundation is currently in the early stages of applying for charity status.

The vision and hope of all connected with the WJBF is to be able to make a difference. And we believe Wings2fly will do exactly that. We want to fulfil the final wishes of palliative patients and create lasting memories for those family and friends who are with their loved ones every step of the way, every day.

Attending a family gathering, a wedding, a visit to the beach or maybe just a ride home to spend some quality 'normal' time together. Wings2fly will provide the transport and the staff to get you where you want to be, safely and comfortably.

Looking forward to this venture very much.
