The North West Air Ambulance Charity provides a helicopter emergency service for almost 9 million people across 5,500 square miles. The charity’s helicopters fly 365 days a year, with doctors and paramedics on board to provide rapid treatment and hospital transfers for patients across the region.
Since it launched in 1999, the charity has flown more than 21,000 urgent missions and is called out an average of five times a day, rising to ten in summer. The charity is reliant on public and corporate donations to keep its helicopters operational and continue to help save lives.
The Merseyside Business Expo is delighted to have been able to offer the North West Air Ambulance Charity an opportunity to reach out to the business community and make them aware of the essential medical and rescue service they provide.
Director of Shout Network, Ian Coupe said, “We have enjoyed a long association with North West Air Ambulance and we’re delighted to give them a platform at the heart of the business community to raise awareness and much needed funds.”
At the event North West Air Ambulance will be inviting the exhibitors and over 2000 delegates to take part in a golf competition whilst learning more about the charity and how they can help fundraise and increases its profile across the business community.
Lynne Whittaker from the charity said, “In a split second unexpected things can happen that will change your life forever. It’s in these moments that the North West Air Ambulance will be at the right place at the right time, saving lives. Our vital work is funded entirely by the generosity of the public through donations, fundraising activity, lottery membership and through our network of retail outlets. As a charity that needs to raise over £8m each year to stay operational, we are very grateful to be the charity partner at Merseyside Business Expo to raise the awareness of our work and much needed funds. We’re looking forward to connecting with North West businesses who can be hugely influential in helping us continue to make a difference in our community”
