1:40pm Wednesday 18th December 2013 in News
Bluefin Insurance's Penrith office has nominated the Great North Air Ambulance Service as its chosen charity as part of the Bluefin ‘Think Giving’ charity campaign and will donate £1,500 to the organisation.
The Great North Air Ambulance Service (GNAAS) is a leading healthcare charity, operating three helicopters in the North-East, North Yorkshire and Cumbria.
Each of its helicopters can reach any point in the region in 15minutes, allowing its on board specialist trauma doctors and paramedics to provide vital life saving treatment and care at the scene of the accident.
Karen Maund, Branch Manager of Bluefin’s Penrith office, commented: “The Great North Air Ambulance provides a vital service to the people in our community. I am delighted to make this donation on behalf of the Bluefin staff in Penrith, which we hope will benefit this exceptional charity and ensure they continue to be on hand wherever they are needed.”
Stacey Hacker from GNAAS said: “We are very grateful to receive this donation from Bluefin Penrith as part of their ‘Think Giving’ campaign. Each mission costs an average of £2,500, their support will keep our Pride of Cumbria air ambulance in the sky, ensuring that its crew continues to be on hand to provide vital life saving care.”
