Shining a light on March’s fundraising heroes

It costs lots of money to keep our air ambulance service running, and we rely on the generosity of the public to ensure we can continue our life-saving mission.

Each month, we’re blown away at the creativity and dedication of our supporters, who go above and beyond to generate funds through various events, challenges, and activities. Let’s take a look back through March’s fundraising activity…

Having a Knit and Knatter

Our lovely volunteer Emma and her GNAAS-obsessed grandson, George, went along to a Knit and Knatter event in Scremerston earlier this month, where members had organised a clothing collection.

The pair were welcomed with open arms by the group, who had plenty of goodies on offer – it’s fair to say Emma and George were well-fed and watered.


Onto a winner

A football game is always much better when the team you’re rooting for win, but we felt we’d already scored a hattrick when Berwick Football Club pledged their support for us.

Volunteer Linda and fundraiser Amanda were welcomed to do a bucket collection at a recent football game; they had a fantastic time cheering the team on from the sidelines, and managed to raise a quid or two, too!

Well done to the BFC for the three-nil win.

A firm handshake

Specialist fundraiser, Ben, went along to Volcan Lodge of the Freemasons to host a presentation and talk in front of 35 of its members.

After a chat, lots of questions, and a quick selfie in the dock, the group very kindly gifted our charity a £700 cheque – we’re incredibly thankful for their support.


Rock and Roll

Don’t worry, paramedic Terry isn’t leaving his day job to become an international rock star… yet! But retired firefighter Darren Elliot and his mates are halfway there! They recently organised a punk rock event in Braithwaite for us and the Firefighters Charity. The group raised an amazing £1,000, AND they had fun while doing it – these boys really know how to rock and roll.

And that’s just a snapshot of the incredible things the people of the North have been up to. If you’re feeling inspired and want to raise funds for us, find out more here.
