Our new charity partner | Great North Air Ambulance Service
We are delighted to announce our new charity partner, who will be our main focus for fundraising, is the Great North Air Ambulance Service.
The charity, which attends major trauma incidents across 8,000 square miles in the North East, Cumbria and North Yorkshire, receives no government funding and relies on grant funders, the public and organisations to help them raise the £5.17million they need annually.
They take over from outgoing charity, The Sick Children’s Trust, which has received over £15,000 from the fundraising at the centre since the start of its partnership in 2012.
We are thrilled to be partnering with the Great North Air Ambulance for the next 12 months. They provide a life saving service with doctor led crews in a wide range of terrains from the mountains to the city centres.
The GNAAS crews work round the clock to help people and the amount of money they need to provide this service continues to increase. The Great North Air Ambulance Service brings pioneering pre-hospital care to the scene, rescuing hundreds of severely injured or ill patients every year. In 2018 they were called out 1,173 times and had 33,414 donors.
