County Tyrone Grand Orange Lodge has presented Air Ambulance Northern Ireland with a cheque for £3,000.00.
This was part of the proceeds of a 5-mile charity walk by lodge members, families and friends from right across Co Tyrone.
Co. Tyrone Grand Master, Bro Perry Reid assisted by Bros Robert Abernethy and Trevor Lockhart presented Kerry Anderson (Head of Fundraising at Air Ambulance Northern Ireland) with the cheque. Perry Reid congratulated the charity and praised the commitments of the medical personnel and all concerned at Air Ambulance NI on the very important work that they do. Reid also commented that a number of people from County Tyrone and right across the province had benefited from this outstanding charity.
In response, Kerry expressed her appreciation on behalf of Air Ambulance NI, to those people in Co. Tyrone who had engaged in the charity walk and thanked the CGM for the donation which would be put to very good use.
It costs over £5K per day to provide the invaluable Helicopter Emergency Medical Service which is so much appreciated by everyone.
