The North West Air Ambulance Charity is calling on locals to become a ‘Heli Hero’ during National Air Ambulance Week, to help raise vital funds for its service.
The charity, which provides emergency medical care from the air, is looking for people across the region to do something heroic between September 23 to 29, to boost funds and raise awareness.
Local businesses, groups and individuals can support the charity by taking on brave tasks throughout the week, such as organising a ‘Heli Hero’ fundraising event, completing a daring sporting challenge, taking part in a challenging sponsorship activity or simply engaging in the charity’s social media ‘Heli Hero’ Campaign.
There are several activities that members of the public can take part in during the awareness week, such as the Ribby Hall 5k Fun Run, the Trafford Centre Abseil and the Liverpool City Centre Roadshow.
Jenny Haskey, head of fundraising at the North West Air Ambulance Charity said: “It costs £4.3 million to keep our two helis operational and saving lives in the North West, so we’d like to invite people across the region to show their support and play a part in helping boost funds and raise awareness of the service we provide.
“There are so many different ways you can become a hero for the North West Air Ambulance Charity.”
