I never even knew Cumbria had an air ambulance, let alone that it had been grounded in March after funding dried up. The “Pride of Cumbria” is operational again as of today after a TV campaign and fund drive raised the required funds. Good news for anyone planning to have a car crash on Shap, I guess.
The “Pride of Cumbria” still requires ongoing funding to continue this life saving service. If you would like to support the charity by making a small regular donation, of 50p a week, this will further ensure the future of the helicopter and will give the charity the opportunity to improve the service it offers. There are also sponsorship opportunities for businesses. Please contact us today on 01325 487263 or write to GNAAS, The Imperial Centre, Grange Road, Darlington, DL1 5NQ.
The Great North Air Ambulance Service is a registered Charity, No. 1092204 and receives no Government funding, or lottery funding; the entire operation depends on public donations to raise the necessary funds to keep the helicopters flying.
