Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance named as our charity of the year

Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce is showing its support for Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance (LNAA) by making it their charity of the year for 2020/21.

Each year, Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce asks for charity submissions from local organisations which are reviewed by the Board and this year LNAA emerged top.

The partnership was formally announced after Lincolnshire Chamber’s Chief Executive, Simon Beardsley visited the charity’s base at RAF Waddington to hear first-hand about the fantastic work they undertake.

Simon Beardsley, said: “Visiting site and speaking to the guys on the ground was a real eye-opener to say the least, the charity receives no direct Government funding, is not part of the NHS and the donations it receives are essential in helping to save lives and we are delighted to be part of those donations and supporting the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance as our charity of the year for 2020/21.”

Karen Jobling, Chief Executive at Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance, said: “The Charity is in such an exciting phase of growth and development and so we’re thankful to the Chamber of Commerce for choosing us as their charity of the year. The support of local businesses and organisations is a vital part of what keeps the service going, delivering critical care to people when they are most in need.”

Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance estimate it costs £2,500 for every mission that is taken on and a total of £4 million a year to keep the helicopter operational 24 hours a day.
