Walkinshaw Supports GNAAS At Croft

1 Mins read

Fergus Walkinshaw will continue his support of Britain’s air ambulances next weekend when he aims to raise awareness and funds for the Great North Air Ambulance Service (GNAAS) at Croft.

Walinshaw will be urging race fans to buy a £10 Bear Mile, with each £10 raised covering the cost of keeping the GNAAS flying for one mile. All fans who support the GNAAS will receive their own cuddly pilot bear and a personalised certificate.

The GNAAS operates three air ambulances costing £4m per year to run, yet it receives no government funding and relies entirely on public support.

“I’m really pleased to join forces with Croft circuit to help raise funds and awareness for the Great North Air Ambulance Service,” said Walkinshaw. “Thousands of BTCC and Ginetta race fans will be heading to Croft, and if just a fraction of them could donate £10 we could help save a lot of lives.”

“Fergus is doing a fantastic job raising awareness of the work of air ambulances throughout the country, so we are delighted to host him in our region,” added Mandy Drake, Head of Fundraising at GNAAS. “We fly more than a thousand missions every year and this would not be possible without public support, so we are very grateful to have the backing of both Fergus and Croft circuit. We will be fundraising onsite throughout the event and look forward to meeting motorsport fans on what promises to be a great weekend.”

Fans can support GNAAS by buying their Bear Mile at the charity’s stand outside of Clervaux Corner, throughout the weekend or visit www.greatnorthairambulance.co.uk.
