BPR Contract Furniture are delighted to announce that our chosen charity for 2020 is Air Ambulance NI. Through a variety of fundraising events and initiatives, we are committed to raising funds and awareness for this fantastic service.
Air Ambulance NI, in partnership with the Northern Ireland Ambulance Service (NIAS) provides the Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) for the region.
Serious or life-threatening situations can happen to anyone at any time and on average, every single day in Northern Ireland, one individual finds themselves in desperate need of AANI.
This charity is particularly close to our hearts as one of our staff members Father was involved in a serious road traffic collision in November 2018 and without the Air Ambulance’s rapid response and pre-hospital care, would not have survived.
The EC135 helicopter can get anywhere in the province in approximately twenty-five to thirty minutes and the rapid response is vital in an emergency situation. If a patient reaches hospital within the Golden Hour (60 minutes after their injury) their chances of survival are dramatically increased.
The charity’s operational helicopter carries a crew compiling pilot, doctor, and paramedic, 365 days of the year operating for twelve hours every day. They attend some of the most traumatic medical incidents across the province and are dedicated to delivering the very best possible pre- hospital care, both at the scene and whilst transferring the patient to the most appropriate hospital for their specific injuries.
The AANI relies entirely on donations and £2m is needed each year to keep the service operational. BPR Contract Furniture will be working hard this year to help raise crucial donations for this incredible charity and your help would be greatly appreciated.
