The last few spaces are still available for an exclusive charity night being held at Melton’s Defence Animal Centre (DAC) in aid of our local Air Ambulance Service.
The event, being held on Wednesday, June 10, 6pm-8pm, will include drinks and canapes in the officers’ mess, a guided tour of the centre’s facilities and demonstrations from the DAC team including from the military farrier and the military dog team. There will also be the opportunity to meet air ambulance crew members. Tickets are £45.
The Air Ambulance Service flies two regional air ambulances - the Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance (DLRAA) and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance (WNAA).
These two helicopters provide a rapid response to trauma and medical emergencies over an area of 3,850 square miles. Each of the helicopters is supported by a rapid response vehicle.
An Air Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “We attend approximately six trauma and medical emergencies every day, 365 days a year. That’s potentially 2,190 lives saved by our helicopter emergency medical teams every year.”
