Your support has helped us save lives

Your support has helped us save lives

In our Summer 2020 edition of SkyShout, when our crews first faced extreme pressure due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we reached out for your support – and you gave it. Your generosity has allowed our crews to remain on the frontline throughout the crisis, delivering critical care to adults and children involved in road traffic collisions, falls, industrial accidents and patients in cardiac arrest.

Your support and generous donations has helped us to raise an incredible £100,000 through out SkyShout appeal! 

Our crews have continued to respond to emergencies and have experienced one of the busiest summers on record, with 348 missions between July and September alone. Whilst we’ve been able to maintain our Helicopter Emergency Medical Service throughout the crisis, every aspect of our operation has had to be reviewed to protect our pilots, paramedics and doctors. With this, our crew have had to deal with the complexity of wearing full personal protective equipment (PPE) in order to keep themselves, and our patients safe.
Like many charities, the impact of coronavirus has led to a loss in income.

We couldn’t be more thankful to everyone who has supported us. Your donations have helped keep the crew going through the pandemic and deliver life-saving interventions at the scene to people like Josh, who you can find out more about here,

David Martin, Director of Fundraising at LNAA, said: “This year has been far more difficult than any of us could have imagined. While we’ve had to adapt to new ways of working, we remain fully committed to providing our life-saving service across Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire, helping those in need.

“We are incredibly grateful to all of our supporters who have donated so generously during this time. Without you, we simply wouldn’t be able to operate. Thanks to your support, we will continue to provide life-saving care to those who are seriously ill and injured.”
