Join the NWAA in our Green Room on Friday 31st May 2019. There will be plenty of information on hand and videos playing throughout the day along with a colouring in table for the children. Fancy having a go at CPR? There will be an opportunity to test your CPR skills with the latest training equipment that will give you a score and you might just get the chance to meet the NWAA mascot ‘Paramedic Pup’!
The North West Air Ambulance Charity’s helicopters fly 365 days a year, with the doctors and paramedics on board providing rapid treatment and hospital transfers to patients across the entire North West region each year – an area covering 5,500 square miles and 8 million people. Since it launched in 1999, the charity has flown more than 17,000 missions across the region, with the ambulance called out an average of five times a day, rising to ten in summer.
Just as many critically injured patients would not survive without the service that the charity provides, the North West Air Ambulance would not be here without the support of its community of fundraisers and partners. The charity is completely reliant on public and corporate donations to keep the North West’s Air Ambulance Charity helicopters operational and helping to save lives, needing to raise over £9.5 million a year to support its lifesaving service.’
This is a free event but donations will be welcomed.
