The 51-year-old suffered critical cycling injuries

The Kent, Surrey and Sussex (KSS) Air Ambulance was called to the scene of the cycling accident where they performed emergency aid. 

The pilot then flew the accident victim into London to a major trauma centre where he spent the next six-months recovering from his injuries. 

Last week the pilot and the cyclist met, and £3,466 was handed over as a donation towards the running of the air ambulance. 

“Meeting Kevin and his colleagues gave me the opportunity to express my sincere thanks for saving my life.

“Since the accident I have been involved with raising money for the Air Ambulance which has added to the positives in my recovery.
