Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance Charity are currently celebrating their 25th anniversary year. To help the Air Ambulance continue its service, nmcn generously donated £1,000 from it’s colleague led charity committee as part of it’s Positive Impact Plan.
Since airlifting their very first patient on 13th May 1994, the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance has provided a life-saving Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) for the local community. To date, the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance has been called out to over 20,000 critically injured patients across Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire.
As part of the event, they unveiled an eye-catching design across the tail of their Ambucopter to mark 25 years of saving lives.
The iconic yellow helicopter tail now depicts 25 pair of hands – with each reflecting on the story of an incredible former patient whose life has been touched by the Charity’s life-saving crew.
Karen Jobling, Chief Executive Officer at Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be celebrating our 25th year in service. Our remarkable Charity has come a very long way since its humble beginnings in 1994, when we operated out of a portakabin and could only fly when we had raised the money to do so. Since then, the tremendous support of our local community has ensured that our Ambucopter remains on call and available to those in need 365 days a year, making a positive impact on their lives.”
“We are incredibly grateful to the people and businesses of Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire who have shown us such wonderful support over this past few months. We receive no direct Government funding, meaning that we rely solely on the generosity of the public to ensure that our life-saving service continues.”
Michaela Skodova, nmcn’s Environmental Manager commented: “In keeping with the “Our Communities” priority of our Positive Impact Plan, it is our pleasure to be able to make one of our biggest donations this year through our colleague led Charity Committee. The cause is extremely important and you hope that you or your loved ones don’t ever have to use it. Sponsoring one of the hands on the helicopter tail reflects how we have been touched by Ambucopters giving and saving lives.”
Throughout the rest of their 25th Anniversary year, the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance are running a series of fundraising events and activities to help keep their Ambucopter in the sky for many more years to come.
