Club raises over £4k for Children’s Air Ambulance

The fantastic charity effort was a result of a previous Nottingham City Business Club lunch, when Sir Ranulph Fiennes attended as ambassador to the charity and gave an inspiring speech about the amazing experiences that span his 40 years as Britain’s most famous explorer. Representatives from the Children’s Air Ambulance also took time to explain more about their work, after which attendees at the lunch showed their support with generous donations as part of a silent auction and raffle. A percentage of the ticket price for the lunch went directly to the charity, too.

Dianne Allen, president of the Nottingham City Business Club, said: “We are so pleased that we managed to raise the amount that we did. Thanks to everyone for their generosity.”

The Children’s Air Ambulance exists to save lives and improve patient outcomes by way of rapid response to trauma and medical emergencies provided free of charge, whenever and wherever there is a need. The charity carries out this service with their two Helicopter Emergency Medical Services and the provision of an emergency helicopter transfer service for critically ill children and babies.
