DLRAA Receives Donation From Belper Halloween Spooktacular Bucket Collection 2019

Published on Wednesday 6 November 2019

On Tuesday 5th November 2019 Andy & Nikki Fearnley donated £520.17 for the Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance (DLRAA)

Andy & Nikki presented Richard & Grace Fletcher Volunteer Derbyshire Community Representatives for DLRAA, with the money at their house in Belper. They decided they would support the DLRAA in a very unique way, to decorate their front garden for Halloween and asked passer-by to make a donation. John & Jenny May have done us proud over the years and this year we start a new chapter now in its 9th year, Andy & Nikki invited me Grace & Julie and friends to the event and we helped with the setup, bucket collection and the night activities.

Richard said: “We were delighted to be presented with the money by Andy & Nikki. 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 & Nikki really is invaluable and goes a long way to helping to keep our lifesaving service flying and saving lives.” We also would like to thank Andy & Nikki Neighbours for allowing us to take over quite a few front gardens and to park cars and too our fantastic friends which Include Anthony Andrews Mobile Kitchen, Emma & Jen`s Super Whippy Ice Creams, Derbyshire Blood Bikes, Face Painting by Abigail, Amberon for proving help and signs for traffic management, Belper Fire Service for their support and attendance on the evening. A huge thank you to the people and business who donated the sweets for the evening.

We are already planning for next year’s event, please come and support this amazing evening at our new location of 6 Pottery Close Belper it will be a Halloween Spookdracular fun for all the family & fiends. If you would like to join us please email me at We would really apricate if a Local Dance Troop that can come and join as we celebrate our 10th Year.

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.
