Fundraising for Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance
WNAA attend around 1000 missions a year - each costing around £1700. They provide the best possible pre-hospital care and rapid transport to specialist hospitals, to those suffering serious injury and illness. WNAA receive no Government funding, relying solely on donations.
Charity Registration No. 1098874
As usual, I will travel to Coventry to join the crew of the Boeing 747-400 installed at the first floor of John's house. It may sound silly, but we do fly this full-size flight deck simulator in real time around the world with a crew of about ten people. And we're joined in the virtual skies by eight other full-size simulators, and dozens of smaller sims. Plus air traffic controllers, who keep the circus safe (ha!).
This means seven full days and nights of quite realistic operations, not to be taken lightly.
Our usual charity is the Air Ambulance, and all your donations will go straight to them. They do need it, really. Thanks for anything you can spare!
