The North West Air Ambulance Charity will be making a flying visit to Chorley town centre on Saturday.

The special touch down is to mark National Air Ambulance Week and help to raise vital funds.

The charity will be landing on Market Street from 9am to 6pm to raise awareness of the lifesaving work they and other air ambulances do across the region.

Chorley is just one stop on their list as they are also visiting Chester, Liverpool, Clitheroe and Lancaster.

The charity’s appearance is a great opportunity for supporters to meet staff and volunteers, learn more about the charity’s vital work and take part in some of the exciting activities they have planned.

As part of the campaign, which will runs until September 27, the charity is asking for supporters to get involved in any way they can to raise funds, as they complete their tour.

“As a charity we rely on the fundraising and donations of people all over the North West to continue to provide our life saving service. It will be great to visit the areas that show us so much support.”

There are many ways the people in Chorley can get on board to raise vital funds for the charity during National Air Ambulance Week.

They can make a one-off donation by cheque, online, over the phone or at their bank and make an even bigger difference by becoming a regular giver.

Just £5 a month helps to make a life-changing difference to the charity’s patients. The standing order form can be found online, or by calling or emailing the office.

Joanne Fowler, regional fundraiser for Lancashire at the North West Air Ambulance, said: “As a charity we rely on the fundraising and donations of people all over the North West to continue to provide our life saving service. It will be great to visit the areas that show us so much support.”
