Air Ambulance NI is delighted to enter into a two-year charity partnership with the Grand Opera House Belfast.
During the next two years, Grand Opera House staff will raise funds through an on-going programme of events and activities, and audiences will have the opportunity to support this valuable medical service through bucket collections at performances.
Announcing the new partnership, Grand Opera House Chief Executive Ian Wilson said: “Grand Opera House staff, performers and theatregoers have a long history of supporting local charities, and I hope our exciting new partnership with the Air Ambulance service will help raise awareness of its work and, more importantly, raise essential funds to ensure it can continue to deliver this lifesaving service for Northern Ireland.”
Kerry Anderson, Head of Fundraising at the charity said: “On behalf of everyone at Air Ambulance NI we would like to thank Grand Opera House for choosing the charity. The medical team are called upon to a seriously ill or injured patient twice a day on average. Whether it’s a serious road traffic collision, fall, sudden cardiac arrest, incident during sports, at home or work our medical team are airborne in minutes providing pre-hospital care that can be the difference between life and death. Every donation will make a difference.”
