Cadwell Park pledges support to Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance

Thursday, February 22 2018

Lincolnshire's Cadwell Park circuit has pledged its support for the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance Trust (LNAAT) by presenting the team with a cheque for £2,483.

The famous motor racing venue, located near Louth, raised funds through a number of activities over the last 12 months. The most notable of these was a 'Stars of the 1980s' charity night which took place in January. Organised by local racer and venue instructor Pete Boast, it featured a number of big-name motorcycle racers including Steve Plater, Mark Philips and Rob McElnea. 

Elaine Nutbrown, Events Co-ordinator at Cadwell Park, visited the LNAAT's operations base at RAF Waddington near Lincoln to meet the team and deliver the cheque.

"The Air Ambulance is such an important part of our local community," Elaine said, "You never know when you might need to rely on the vital service provided by the team here, whether it's on the road, race track or elsewhere. We're delighted to offer our support."

Gemma Shaw, LNAAT Fundraising Manager added: "Support from local businesses, like MotorSport Vision at Cadwell Park, means so much to us. Each partnership and each donation puts us one step closer to our goal of being able to fund our service 24 hours a day. Flying for more hours means we can help more people. Every time our crew is dispatched, I picture the patient's family's relief, knowing they are going to get the best pre-hospital critical care available to them. Thousands of people still have their loved ones today thanks to the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance."

The money raised by Cadwell Park will help to save lives in Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire, and anyone interested in pledging support to the trust can get more information at http://www.ambucopter.org.uk.

Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance fundraising team will be present at a number of events at the Louth venue in 2018, full fixtures for the season can be found by clicking here.
