Fundraising for the Great North Air Ambulance Service
Rockliffe Hall will be helping to raise funds for the Great North Air Ambulance Service
throughout 2012 by holding events such as staff fundraising activities, making prize donations and offering the resort as a venue for GNAAS's
is a charity which operates without Government funding and therefore relies entirely on public donations. It has three aircraft stationed across its two bases at Durham Tees Valley Airport near Darlington and at Langwathby, near Penrith in Cumbria.
The team provides the highest standards of pre-hospital care at an accident scene and then flies the patient to the hospital best suited to their needs.
Managing director of Rockliffe Hall, Nick Holmes, said: "The GNAAS
offers a unique service, easing suffering and saving the lives of people all over the North. However, it receives no Government money and has to rely on the generosity of the public to keep it running. It's a vital service supported by a team with such dedication. Rockliffe Hall
is proud to be their new corporate partner and we'll be helping to raise- hopefully- lots of money in the coming year."
One of the first fundraising activities for the GNAAS
is the Coast to Coast Challenge
, which involves 14 Rockliffe Hall
staff, including 12 cyclists and a support team of 2. This involves cycling just under 150 miles over three days, starting at Whitehaven and finishing in Sunderland on the 6th, 7th and 8th September 2012. We are asking for donations to support the team for this great challenge, with all proceeds raised going directly to the Great North Air Ambulance Service
