Funds raised for the Great North Air Ambulance Service.

On Monday 8 January 2024 we welcomed Amanda Simmister from the Great North Air Ambulance Service (GNAAS) to our Berwick upon Tweed office.

Amanda was presented with donations by GWA staff.  Staff raised £361.25 from their annual Christmas Jumper Day on 15 December 2023  and for the total ongoing funds raised to date, an impressive £3,500.00

Some of our staff also joined Amanda for a bracing walk around the towns Elizabethan walls as part of the GNAAS Walk the Wall 2024 Challenge.

Well done to everyone who has played a part in raising these much needed funds over the years!

You can find out more about the Great North Air Ambulance, the work they do and make a donation on their website:
