The Wainwright Society is delighted to announce that sales of the Society’s 2019 Calendar raised a total of £9,320.
This money together with donations from the Society’s Challenge brings the total raised for the Society’s beneficiary, the Great North Air Ambulance Service to £10,800!
The money was presented at the Society’s Annual General Meeting on Saturday 30th March.
The Society’s fundraising will pay for three next-generation ultrasound machines to help diagnose cardiac arrests and heart attacks, one for each helicopter in the fleet.
Speaking on behalf of the charity, Grahame Pickering MBE, GNAAS chief executive, said: “With the support of the Wainwright Society and its members, our service just got that bit more comprehensive. We’d like to thank everyone who supported this fundraising endeavour not just on behalf of the charity but also those patients who will need this vital piece of kit in the future.”
The Society will be producing a 2020 Calendar, which will go on sale later this year. The profits from sales of the 2020 Calendar will be donated to the Blencathra Centre, the Society’s main beneficiary for 2019.
