Following on from last month’s National Air Ambulance Week (NAAW) the Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance is calling for people across the two counties to help raise awareness and funds for the life-saving charity. Over the last 25 years, the Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance has responded to more than 20,000 potentially life-saving missions. On average, the medical crew attend three incidents every single day, where they provide the equivalent of a hospital Accident and Emergency department to people suffering from the most serious of illnesses and devastating injuries directly to the scene of an incident.
George Overton, Director of Fundraising and Communications at Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance, said: “We are so grateful for the fantastic support we receive every single day from our local community and businesses from across the two counties. The National Air Ambulance Week gave all local air ambulance charities a national united voice, promoting all the hard work which goes on not only during this week, but every single day of the year.
“Without the support and generosity of our local communities, we simply would not be able to do what we do and continue saving lives every day.”
