We’re also bringing back our hugely popular Fun Day at Wollaton Park this 26 July. There will be fun attractions for the whole family to enjoy throughout the day, a dog show and much, much more. Click here to read all about it.
The Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance is a dedicated Helicopter Emergency Medical Service which first began flying operations in Lincolnshire in April 1994.
Based at RAF Waddington, south of Lincoln, our base is unaffected by road congestion, country roads, heavy vehicles or road works. Our Helicopter, we affectionately call our ‘ambuctoper’, is fully equipped for almost any medical emergency. It is permanently staffed by two paramedics and occasionally a doctor. It is capable of flying at speeds of just under 160mph and can reach any point in the two counties in less than 20 minutes. For our patients this often means the difference between life and death!
Every year we fly approximately 1,000 missions and each year the generous people of Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire help us to raise the money to do this! They help us raise the £1.9M we need to keep our ambucopter flying. Please continue to spread the word, organise fundraisers, play our lottery, volunteer your time and donate to our shops. Together we can keep this vital lifesaving service operating for many years to come.
