For the month of January we will be running a charity month here at I Sell Gym Stuff where for every item ordered as part of a sale we will donate £2.50 per item to the Air Ambulance service that runs as a Registered Charity in the UK (No. 1098874).
Why the Air Ambulance service? Well this is a service that I have directly benefited from when back in 2008 I was involved in a serious accident that left me with a life-threatening head injury, one that needed immediate surgical intervention which led to the Air Ambulance being called to my location and then flying me to a specialist Neurosurgery hospital in Coventry. Thanks to the fast response of everyone that day I am still around to tell the tale.
The Air Ambulance service is a donation funded service, meaning without the kind support of the public, it would cease to exist. So, as a means of giving back for this wonderful service, I Sell Gym Stuff will be running this donation pledge across the whole of January with all sales qualifying for this.
A Little About the Service
The Air Ambulance Service operates the national Children’s Air Ambulance and the local air ambulance services for Warwickshire, Northamptonshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland.
Our vision is clear. We want children to grow into adults, we want adults to live longer and we want bereavement through trauma to become rare.
Each of our services works tirelessly to save lives and alleviate sickness, wherever and whenever possible.
Local air ambulance services – WNDLR
We fly two local air ambulances services, serving a total of five counties.
- Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance (WNAA)
- Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance (DLRAA)
These two helicopters provide a rapid response to trauma and medical emergencies over an area of 3,850 square miles. They cover many of the UK’s major road networks including the M1, M6, M69 and M42. With an average response of just 13 minutes, between them they attend on average six missions a day.
More information about their services and patient stories can be found on their website:
Many thanks for helping out with such a worthy cause :-)
