A lifesaving charity will be making a flying visit to Clitheroe on Saturday (August 13th).

The North West Air Ambulance is celebrating its 17th year with a whole series of roadshows across the region. Clitheroe is the fourth stop on the list, and the team will be in the town centre from 9 am to 4-30 pm. Previous events have taken place in Chorley, Liverpool and Lancaster. Supporters of the North West Air Ambulance charity will be able to meet staff and volunteers and learn more about the crucial work they to do provide rapid treatment and hospital transfers across the entire North West region.

The charity flew over 2,000 rescue missions last year – entirely funded by public and corporate donations. The roadshow series also aims to raise critical funds to keep the helicopters in the skies.

Jo Fowler, regional fundraiser for the North West Air Ambulance Charity, said: “We’re delighted to be bringing the next roadshow in the series to Clitheroe. We’re so grateful to the people of the North West for helping to keep our lifesaving team flying across the region, and are looking forward to sharing stories with as many people as possible.”

There are many ways the people of Clitheroe can make a lifesaving difference to their local air ambulance charity. Fundraising team members will be hand to educate supporters on how to successfully host their own fundraising events, no matter how big or small. Fundraisers will also be raising awareness of the charity’s own Mission Walk, a 10km walk in Wyresdale Park, which will be taking place for the first time this September
