Our Immediate Past Master, Worshipful Brother Peter Manning, presented at cheque for £3,458 to Sir John Saunders for the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance at a reception held at Warwick Castle this week. The money was raised by the Lodge during his year in 2016.
Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance (WNAA) was established in 2003 and exists to provide a HEMS (Helicopter Emergency Medical Service) to the counties of Warwickshire, Northamptonshire and the Milton Keynes area.
Their service does not simply transport patients to the nearest hospital; their service routinely carries senior Doctors and Consultants to the scene of incidents in just minutes, providing lifesaving treatment and medication at the scene and en-route to hospital. In essence, They take the hospital to the patient, providing the best possible chance of a full recovery.
