Almost 250 guests celebrated the best and brightest from the air ambulance world last night at the national Air Ambulance Awards of Excellence 2014.

Awards host, BBC Breakfast presenter Louise Minchin handed over 10 Awards to some outstanding individuals and teams, whose stories were inspirational, astonishing and humbling. The awards, which are independently judged, went to pilots, paramedics, doctors, fundraisers and volunteers who collected their trophies from Louise Minchin and co-host, Red Dwarf’s Robert Llewellyn, at the ceremony held in central London last night.

An enthusiastic audience listened to the remarkable stories of each shortlisted nominee, all of whom demonstrated excellence and commitment well above and beyond the call of duty.

The Lifetime Achievement Award went to Gerry Hermer, while the always-popular Outstanding Young Person Award went to Jayden ‘JJ’ Butcher. A full list of winners appears below.

Chairman of the Judging Panel, Guy Opperman MP, said: “I can safely say that our job this year was made incredibly hard by both the number and the high quality of the entries. The exceptional skills, care and devotion of all those who were nominated was amazing and humbling to all of the judges, and for many categories we said what a shame it was that there can be only one winner. On behalf of the judges I would like to thank all those who made a nomination, congratulate every single nominee, and salute the winners.”
