This autumn, NI Ultimate DJ’s will be hosting an epic weekend of events, to raise vital funds for Air Ambulance NI. The events are sponsored by Baird Sound Systems and will take place on Friday 18th & Saturday 19th November at the Atlantic Bar, Portrush.
The weekend of events will be the first of their kind and will see both local and international DJ’s perform, such a DJ Hammy B, DJ Muza J, DJ Tegula, X-Ray and many many more.
Doors will open at 8pm and the team of DJ’s are asking for a minimum donation of £10 per person.
John Murray aka DJ Muza J from NI Ultimate DJ’s said,
“We would like to encourage everyone in the *local area/Northern Ireland* to get behind our epic event, as its sure to be an amazing weekend! We have some amazing DJ’s performing and fantastic support from the local community, including the Atlantic Bar. I would like to take this opportunity to thank them for facilitating our unique event. We are asking for a minimum of £10 donation at the door and will be putting on an amazing show for everyone in attendance!
As we are all road users, we never know quite know when you will need the assistance of the Helicopter Emergency Medical Service team and I appreciate the value this lifesaving service can bring to areas with extended travel times, for specialist emergency care.”
The Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) responds on average to 2 incidents daily, somewhere in Northern Ireland. Since the service first launched in July 2017, the HEMS has been tasked on over 3,093 occasions.
The charity Air Ambulance NI, in partnership with the Northern Ireland Ambulance Service, provides the HEMS for Northern Ireland. The HEMS team attend patients who are seriously ill or injured, bringing emergency pre hospital care direct to the casualty, with the aim of saving lives, brains and limbs.
Grace Williams, Area Fundraising Manager said
“John and the NI Ultimate DJ team are a real inspiration, organising this unique fundraising event, combining their passion for DJing and support for their local Air Ambulance. We are just so delighted that they have chosen to support Air Ambulance NI in this unique way.
As a service we rely heavily on charitable donations to keep the medical team in the air, delivering critical care to patients who have suffered trauma throughout Northern Ireland – without continued support, the team simply couldn’t fly. Every single penny counts.
With a daily fundraising need of £5,500, we are so grateful to John and the whole team of NI Ultimate DJ’s, for this wonderful opportunity. I would like to encourage everyone to support their fundraising events on Friday 18th and Saturday 19th November, as it is sure to be an unforgettable weekend!”
