Air ambulance wants your support

PEOPLE throughout the Sleaford area are being asked to support the county’s ambucopter service.

National Air Ambulance Week is taking place between September 24 and 30 and the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance Trust is hoping to encourage local people to do their bit during that week to support the life saving service.

The week is an initiative put together by the Association of Air Ambulances, the organisation which unites not only air ambulance charities across the country but also operators and ambulance services.

Vivienne Chambers, of the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance Trust, said “We’re joining together with other local air ambulances across the country to ask everyone to get involved during National Air Ambulance Week.

“Why not hold a dress up/dress down or wear yellow day at your school, college or work place? We believe fundraising should be fun and an event like this is easy to organise and takes very little pre planning.

“We can also help with posters, stickers and wristbands for those taking part.”

Vivienne added: “You may wish to organise your own event. Maybe you want to hold a cake sale, fete, or a sponsored walk, cycle or swim. Whatever you decide to do, rest assured that all monies raised will stay locally, helping to keep your local air ambulance flying.”

To register your event or to find out more about how you can help, contact Vivienne Chambers, air ambulance fundraiser for Lincolnshire, on 01522 548469 or by email at
