North West Air Ambulance Gets A Boost
Photographs by Patrick Trollope.

WIDNES Rotary Club presented a cheque for £365 to North West Air Ambulance to launch  "Operation Alfie" on Merseyside.

"Operation Alfie" is a new major initiative to raise funds and maximum awareness of the North West Air Ambulance (NWAA), the only regional medical air emergency service and registered charity.  

The Costing £75,000 every month to maintain the NWAA receives no mainstream funding.  The NWAA relies on goodwill of people and companies in the region for donations to cover its area of 5,500 square miles and a resident population of seven million people.

The launch of "Operation Alfie" was started with a flying visit around the North West and former patients attended at every destination to show their support.   Over all £23,000 was donated in the two days from companies and volunteers eager to see this vital life line continued.   Widnes Rotary Club presented their cheque when the helicopter landed at Stanley Park in Liverpool on Tuesday 2 November.   

Lynda Brislin, chief executive for the NWAA told us that:- "Businesses and volunteers have been good to us with their donations in the past and we need this to continue.  We are extremely grateful to Widnes Rotary Club for their donation."

If you can help the NWAA ring 0151 527 2511 or if you wish to make a donation call 0800 587 4570.

KEEP OUR FLYING HEROES IN THE SKY!
