Thank You From DLRAA Volunteers To The People Of Belper Who Donated To Our Yellow Cross Collection

by Amber Valley Info on Wednesday 11 September 2019

To celebrate the Launch of National Air Ambulance Week (NAAW) On Saturday 7th & Sunday 8th September 2019 a bucket collection was held in the Town Centre of Belper, handing out our special yellow cross pin badges in exchange for donations. The generosity of people was fantastic and the response we got on the streets from the public was amazing despite the mixed weather, we raised £742.39

It is a time when Air Ambulance Charities come together across the country, giving a national voice, raising awareness of the lifesaving service provided by your local air ambulance service. The first nationally-coordinated National Air Ambulance Week (NAAW) in 2012 proved an excellent focal point for charities to raise awareness and boost their fundraising, and has grown each year since. Air Ambulance charities across the country receive fantastic support every single day from the community, businesses and friends of the service.  However, during National Air Ambulance Week (NAAW) all of the member charities get together to highlight the work undertaken locally and promote all of the hard work which goes on not only during NAAW but every single day of the year in saving lives.

Richard Fletcher Derbyshire Community Representative for DLRAA said “I want to thank all the people and visitors of Belper who were so generous and helped raise this money for the DLRAA, also the volunteers that joined me Grace & Julie Fletcher, Rajan Athwal, Kevin Tryner.

When you’re fighting for your life, every second counts. For us, this makes every mission critical. DLRAA was formed in 2008, every day of the year your local air ambulance is helping save lives. Our critical care paramedics, trauma doctors and pilots fly an average of six rescue missions a day – from medical emergencies, to road traffic collisions, to sports injuries, to industrial accidents. Our rapid response gives people the very best chance of survival and recovery. But we couldn’t do this without people like you. We rely entirely on donations to raise the £1,700 we need to fund each rescue mission. DLRAA receives no Government and National Lottery funding.
