Bluebird Care’s Lincolnshire branches have launched an official partnership with the Lincolnshire & Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance.
Home care providers Bluebird Care Lincoln, South Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire hope to increase public awareness about Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance in the region and raise funds for the service, which relies solely on charitable donations.
Harriet Webber, director of the three Lincoln branches, experienced first-hand the heroic actions of Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance, when they came to her rescue during an accident. It was this life experience that spurred her to establish the partnership.
Michael Bryce, Wellbeing and Engagement officer at Bluebird Care Lincolnshire’s branches, commented: “We are delighted to be partnering with Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance and supporting their incredible cause. This exceptional team work tirelessly across Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire to save the lives of absolutely anyone that needs their critical support and, without any government funding, require a considerable amount of donations to keep operating.
“With the long-term partnership plans in place, we will strive to raise funds and awareness to aid their life-saving work. I, along with everyone at the Bluebird Care Lincoln branches, hope that our partnership with Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance will prove to be beneficial for this inspiring cause and last long into the future.”
Tanya Taylor, Corporate Fundraising Manager for Linc & Notts Ambulances, said:”No-one wakes up thinking they’ll need a critical care team landing by helicopter to save their life, but every day our doctors, paramedics and pilots at the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance take an A&E team to patients who are having their worst day.
“We work closely with our fantastic NHS, but we don’t receive direct government funding and rely on the public’s generosity. We are delighted to be working with the team at Bluebird Care and help save lives together.”
