Prince William’s historic visit was celebrated with the dedication of a medical motorbike in his name by Magen David Adom UK.

The charity’s recent Pesach appeal raised enough funds to purchase nine emergency medicycles for Israel, one of which was inscribed to mark the Royal tour. It is part of plans to raise funds for 70 emergency vehicles for Israel during the year of the country’s 70th anniversary.

The medicycle, which is ready for action immediately after its dedication, is inscribed to mark the visit.

MDA UK Chief Executive Daniel Burger said: “The Royal visit has provided the people of Israel with so much excitement and pride. Magen David Adom is the provider of Israel’s only air ambulances and Prince William is a former air ambulance pilot himself, so we wanted to do something to mark this special occasion.

“Prince William will no doubt be aware as to how important the donation of these life-saving vehicles are to the wellbeing of the people.”

As with all state and VIP visits, Magen David Adom was on hand to provide full cover for the duration of Prince William’s stay.
