Local charity boutique store funds almost 400 lifesaving missions
Your local air ambulance charity boutique based in Kingsthorpe is celebrating funding almost 400 lifesaving missions for the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance (WNAA), which is celebrating 20 years of vital service.
Situated in the heart of Northampton, the boutique charity store opened its doors on 20 May 2016 and over the past seven years has generated a fantastic £640,929.96 worth of sales for the charity – funding almost 400 lifesaving missions throughout Northamptonshire and further afield.
The local store has received 66,367 bags of donated goods over the years which have provided vital income for the charity, but they continue to require the support of the local community for further donations of new and preloved items to continue saving lives.
Within minutes, WNAA’s critical care crews can be on the ground delivering pre-hospital emergency care and giving patients the very best chance of survival – so the dedicated support from its local supporters has been and continues to be greatly appreciated by the charity and the patients they attend.
Store Manager, Chris Ireland said: “We would like to say a massive thank you to the local community who have supported us over the past seven years. Without their support we wouldn’t be able to continue our lifesaving missions.”
“We rely on our local community’s support with donations of pre-loved items such as bric-a-brac, clothing and toys to keep our vital missions possible and keep our crews delivering pre-hospital critical care 24/7, 365 days per year,” he added.
The charity is celebrating 20 years of providing lifesaving service across Warwickshire and Northamptonshire, developing over the years into the leading provider of pre-hospital critical care it is today. To help the charity mark this momentous milestone and support it so its missions can continue, why not visit a charity store and grab a bargain, donate unwanted clothing to one of many clothing banks, get involved in a challenge event, fundraise, or even sign up to volunteer.
