A big thank you to all at WCF Chandlers for choosing LNAA as their Charity of the Year for a second year.

Tanya Taylor, Corporate Partnerships Manager for LNAA said: “We would like to say a huge thank you to WCF Chandlers for their support and fundraising achievements. The money raised will help greatly towards the vital funding of our service and enables us to keep our helicopters airborne, our Critical Care Cars operational and our crews equipped to treat patients involved in the most serious life-threatening incidents.”

In July 2021, WCF Chandlers chose the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance as their Charity Of The Year when a team kickstarted their fundraising by pedalling on a spin bike, the distance of the rim of their delivery areas.

Four staff members next braved the pain as they volunteered to go under the hot waxing strips – they raised £659 for their efforts.

Then an amazing team of four tackled the 100km Peak District challenge on the 9th and 10th of July, and showed great resilience and tenacity, pushing themselves to the limit in baking hot conditions and willing each other on walking the full 100km route spread over two days, around the stunning but challenging Peak District.

The fundraising goal was soon smashed and to date the team has raised a total of £3,625.96 which is to be matched funded. Two of the team have also generously given up their time to volunteer at events including helping at the Lincoln City Takeover during Air Ambulance Week.

The team recently visited LNAA HQ, where they met and chatted with the on-duty crew. Charlotte Carratt, Marketing Manager, said “We chose to fundraise for LNAA as the charity responds to emergencies across our fuel delivery area, sometimes directly helping our customers in their times of need. We are absolutely in awe of the work the crew does and how dedicated the team is. We are delighted to confirm that our partnership will extend until December 2023 with lots more “fun” fundraising to come!”
