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 corporate events.
The GNAAS 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.”
A team of 17 cyclists from Rockliffe Hall are undertaking Rockliffe Hall’s second annual Coast to Coast challenge, cycling 171 miles over three days from Walney in Cumbria to Whitby. The team aims to beat the £2,000 they raised in 2012 with sponsorship totaling at least £3,000.
