Rescue team which saves lives in Cumbria celebrates 15th birthday

A RESCUE team which has saved lives in Cumbria is celebrated its 15th birthday.

The North West Air Ambulance Charity is calling for supporters to send in their inspirational stories to mark the occasion.

As the service has carried out more than 18,000 missions since 1999, the North West Air Ambulance Charity is encouraging anyone who has needed or supported the charity to record and share their story on video.

Celebrities, volunteers and medical crews are also being urged to participate and post messages.

Last year, the NWAA flew more than 1,800 rescue missions throughout the region. The team cover 5,500 square miles and eight million people.

Donations enable helicopters to remain operational so they can continue to save lives across the North West.

The North West Air Ambulance Charity’s helicopters fly 365 days a year, with the doctors and paramedics on board providing rapid treatment, hospital transfers, and ultimately, giving the gift of time to patients across the entire North West region each year.

Anyone who wishes to take part can upload their video by logging onto www.nwaa.net and follow the section on how to upload a video.
