Thank You Chesterfield Football Club

Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance are saying a big thank you to the staff and supporters of Chesterfield Football Club who raised a fantastic £1850.00.

Representatives Alan and Louise Grimadell and Steve Dick attended a game to receive the proceeds of a collection that raised £3700.00 which was split between St John Ambulance and The Air Ambulance. The collection was organised by the Chesterfield FC Community Trust in recognition of the live-saving efforts of both organisations during a game against Lincoln City when a ticket holder collapsed, requiring CPR from a St John Ambulance volunteer and the efforts of the Air Ambulance crew to save him.

Thank you again from everyone at the Local Air Ambulance – without you, we wouldn’t be able to continue our lifesaving work.
