Lifesaving charity hosts local Open Day to celebrate 15 years’ service

The local Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance (DLRAA) is hosting its much anticipated Open Day to celebrate 15 years of lifesaving service.

The Family Fun Day is being held this Sunday 30 July at Leicester Racecourse offering visitors the  opportunity to see the state-of-the-art AgustaWestland 109SP helicopter and vital Critical Care Car, as well as an opportunity to meet and greet the frontline crews.

With lots planned, there will also be live music and a variety of activities and entertainment throughout the day, with numerous stalls including Tuilagi Distillery’s pop-up bar, and a special guest in attendance – the Mayor of Derby, Cllr Alan Graves.

With many food and drink vendors to choose from, the event is set to be a fun-filled day for all the family whilst supporting a lifesaving charity.

TAAS Community Fundraising Executive Julie Gray, commented:

“The Open Day is really set to be a great day out where the public and supporters can see our fabulous service up-close and learn more about the lifesaving missions we undertake.

“We look forward to seeing everyone there joining us in celebrating our 15th anniversary and recent 50,000th mission milestone. The public’s support will help us to continue saving the lives of countless people across Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Rutland and further afield.”

The free event is still ticketed, so those attending have been asked to bring along a copy of their e-tickets as these will be scanned at the gates.
