by Amber Valley Info on Friday 12 January 2018

On Saturday 23rd December 2017, Andrew Fearnley from Spondon off Road Club donated £90.94 for the Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance (DLRAA).

Andrew Fearnley from Belper presented Richard Fletcher Derbyshire Community Representatives for DLRAA, with the money. The donation came when Andrew had chosen to raise money for us this year at some of their events at Stainby and at Sibbertoft in Market Harborough. Andrew explained Spondon off Road Club is a Derbyshire based 4×4 club (Motor Sport Authority MSA registered), with members from across the Midlands region. Their members participate in hidden punch events, cane trial sections and some pay and play days, various types of off-road events in a relaxed, family friendly but marshal controlled environment. They try to cater for all types of driver from novices just starting out, to the more enthusiastic of us. The events are usually organised so that all types of 4 wheel drive vehicles can be used. Road legal and trailered vehicles are welcome at their events, but all vehicles must meet minimum scrutinizing requirements (Full requirements can be found at their website.

Richard said: “I was delighted to be presented with the money from Andy; everyone has been fantastic in supporting him. DLRAA relies entirely on donations from members of the public as it receives no Government or National Lottery funding, therefore support from people such as Andy & Spondon off Road Club and all their friends is invaluable and goes a long way to helping to keep our lifesaving service flying and saving lives.”

DLRAA was formed in 2008 and attend approximately five to six rescue missions every day, from horse riding accidents, to road traffic collisions, to sports injuries, falls, and many more –and has carried out more than 9,200 rescue missions and saved many lives in the process, each rescue mission costing on average £1,700
