A WARWICKSHIRE-based company has donated to the local air ambulance charity for rising to the challenge posed by the pandemic.
The NFU Central Warwickshire, has presented Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance (WNAA) with a cheque for over £3,200.
Staff at the Stoneleigh-based organisation wante to show their appreciation to the charity for the 24/7 frontline service they provide to the community – especially during the pandemic.
WNAA spokesman Lee Bunting said: “We are immensely grateful to NFU Central Warwickshire for their generous donation.
“We are proud to say that throughout this pandemic, we have continued to provide pre-hospital critical care to the people of Warwickshire when they needed us most.”
The charity adapted to pandemic conditions by providing crews with vital PPE and making modifications to the aircraft – to continue providing its lifesaving service, supporting the NHS when it needed it most.
Lee added: “All the additional safety precautions have obviously come at a financial cost, but it’s because of donations like this that we have been able to continue providing our vital service.
“We sincerely hope that we are now coming to the end of this pandemic and are already noticing the enthusiasm from the public to get back to fundraising – which we are incredibly grateful for.”
Danny James said: “Covid-19 continues to have a huge impact on everybody, including our customers and their local communities.
“The local air ambulance has been making a wonderful difference to our community during these challenging times, and we feel extremely proud to hear how our support has made an impact.”
