As everyone knows we run major events to raise money for the Great North Air Ambulance. We also run a number of raffles to help raise money. A while back we asked the Air Ambulance if there was a piece of ‘kit’ that the paramedics on the helicopter would like to make their jobs easier.

The team were in the process of raising money for a state of the art defibrillator which was effective and portable. The piece of kit was over £2000 and they had not raised enough money so we gave them £600 and now they are the proud owners of this excellent piece of kit.

You will see from the photograph Carole has the new piece of equipment and Mike has the older version carried in the helicopter. Mike says although the larger defibrillator  has a number of other functions the new kit is fantastic for using in the field. What we need now is another two to kit out the Cumbria and Northumbria helicopters.

The photo shows Carole Mike and Karen alongside the Teesside helicopter based at Durham Tees Valley Airport.
