Bakery supports air ambulance’s lifesaving missions

25th Oct

Cooplands Bakery has been supporting the Air Ambulance Service from 2015 and has since raised more than £65,000 for each charity. The three charities based in Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and Co Durham help save lives across the region and all rely on the generosity of individuals and organisations to operate.
Marketing manager Jade Normington said: “We’re so happy to have raised this much money for such incredible and impactful charities and we’d like to thank our customers for all their generous donations. The Air Ambulance Service is a real lifeline in the regions we operate in and we really appreciate all the hard work they do to ensure we are safe.”
As rapid response air emergency services, the charities provide lifesaving care for the local region. At a time when every second counts, the arrival of the helicopters really can mean the difference between life and death. The air ambulance transport the equivalent of an A&E department to people suffering from the most serious of illnesses and devastating injuries, providing the best possible treatment as quickly as possible.
Last year the Yorkshire Air Ambulance alone attended 1,858 incidents and carried 416 patients to hospital for emergency treatment.
Rob Scott, Yorkshire Air Ambulance East Yorkshire community fundraiser, said: “We would like to say a huge thank you to Cooplands Bakery for their continued support over the last four years and for raising such an incredible amount of money for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
“The money raised will help tremendously towards the vital funding of our service and enable us to continue saving lives across Yorkshire.”
