Air ambulance charity receives £2,725 from Cadwell Park

Monday, February 11 2019

Cadwell Park race circuit presented the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance Trust with a cheque for £2,725, raised through 2018 fundraising activities plus last month's annual charity bike night.

The evening, which celebrated motorcycle racing in the nineties, starred riders Mike 'Spike' Edwards, Matt Llewellyn and Alan Carter, has become a popular fixture in the Cadwell Park calendar and featured a charity raffle and auction. Run in partnership with local racer and MSVT bike instructor Pete Boast, this year's event set a new record, building on last year's £2,483 total.

Cadwell Park Circuit Manager, Paul Woodford said: "We don't need much excuse for a motorsport-themed social evening, but this is something we've done for a few years now and special thanks must go to Pete Boast and our Events Coordinator Elaine Nutbrown who put so much hard work in.

"The Air Ambulance team notified us today that the amount we've raised will pay for a whole 'mission' from take-off to landing. I hope everyone who got involved with the evening can share our pride that our efforts that night and through the year at Cadwell Park might just help to save someone's life."

The Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance Trust relies on donations from people and organisations in the region to maintain its service. Since 2018, the team has been flying life-saving missions 24 hours a day, making donations from the public and events more important than ever.
