Translink Support for Air Ambulance NI

Fundraising for Air Ambulance Northern Ireland
raised of £1,000 target
We provide critical, pre-hospital care to trauma patients in Northern Ireland.


Translink has announced Air Ambulance Northern Ireland as its designated charity partner for the next three years after a company wide staff vote.  

The new partnership strapline, ‘saving lives, there for the journey’, encapsulates the purpose of raising funds so that the Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) continues to provide pre-hospital critical care in emergency incidents.

For both organisations transport is clearly key with Translink covering 44 million miles per annum across road and rail and the air ambulance service essentially providing a rapid transit hospital direct to scene either by road or air when needed, which is on average twice every day.

Chris Conway, Group Chief Executive at Translink said:

“We are proud to announce Air Ambulance as our new charity partner following a company-wide staff vote. Translink has a strong history of supporting local charities and our staff really get behind the partnerships to help raise vital funds and drive awareness of the important services our local charities offer. This new partnership with Air Ambulance NI will be no different and I’m really looking forward to supporting our staff as we plan a range of events and initiatives to boost the funds needed to keep the essential work of the Air Ambulance NI going.

“No one wants to be in the situation where they or a loved one need the services of the Air Ambulance, but it’s so important that the team at Air Ambulance NI has the necessary funding it needs to continue to provide vital lifesaving assistance, and we hope that our commitment over the next three years will help the charity save even more lives and ensure everyone gets home safe.”
