Air Ambulance lands Linney donation
Linney Regenerate’s mission to support local causes has boosted funds for a life-saving service close to the hearts of our own people.
Steve Freeman and his daughter Rebecca were among Linney colleagues sharing stories about how the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance (LNAA) has made a difference to the lives of their family members and friends.
Steve’s dad Alec suffered a heart attack at a football match between Chesterfield FC and Lincoln City. The match was stopped to allow the Air Ambulance to land on the Chesterfield pitch and provide the medical assistance required to keep him alive before transporting him to the nearest hospital.
“It’s incredible that my grandad’s here to tell the tale. After an operation to fit a pacemaker, he can’t wait to get back to watching the football regularly” said Rebecca.
Steve and Rebecca joined other Linney colleagues who have benefited from the LNAA’s work to present the donation to its corporate development fundraiser Tanya Taylor. Tanya explained how support like this will allow the LNAA to increase its operation from 12 to 24 hours a day, helping thousands of individuals each year.
