The NWAA operates three helicopters over the North West, flying 365 days a year with doctors and paramedics on board providing emergency medical treatment.
For over 15 years the North West Air Ambulance Charity has provided the rapid pre-hospital care needed to make a life changing difference. They operate three helicopters, flying 365 days a year with doctors and paramedics on board providing emergency medical treatment when time is critical.
NWAA are never further than 10 minutes to the nearest hospital in the region. However, it is the speed in which they can travel to the region’s specialist trauma hospitals that can make a life changing difference. Trauma patients need to receive treatment quickly in order to prevent death or long-term disability.
Whether flying to the North West’s busy motorways, remote countryside or city centres, NWAA cover 5,500 square miles and provide an urgent lifesaving service to the 8 million people of the North West and its visitors each year.
Chris Doyle, Colne Branch Manager for the Marsden said, “The charity has wide support from our members and we hope, with their support, the affinity accounts and continued fundraising activities across the business that we can increase our donation. It costs just over £13k to keep one of the helicopters flying each month and so the Marsden has set its mission to keep the helicopter’s flying for as long as possible with our next donation and hope that members get on board with our mission to help too!”
