Wellingborough Pubs join lifesaving charity’s new initiative
A group of Wellingborough pubs have joined a brand-new initiative to support the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance (WNAA), as the charity celebrates 20 years of vital service.
The charity’s new initiative, Pub Club, brings together landlords, breweries and pub visitors to give them a place to fundraise through a whole host of means such as quizzes, games tournaments, family fun days and themed evenings in support of the local lifesaving charity.
Pubs already signed up to Pub Club in the Wellingborough area are, The Crown, The Volunteer, The Priory, and The Stags Head in Great Doddington. As part of the initiative, all these pubs will receive full support from a dedicated local Community Fundraising Executive, as well as bespoke collateral to help promote their involvement and support for the charity.
“We are so happy that so many pubs in Wellingborough have joined our new fundraising initiative. This is a brand new, fun way to not only support our lifesaving service but also to get the community involved to showcase how local pubs really are at the heart of a community,” said Karen Hughes, Community Fundraising Executive for Northamptonshire.
“We don’t receive National Lottery or government funding, so rely entirely on voluntary donations and support from communities and businesses. Support through initiatives such as this is vital to keep our lifesaving service operational,” she added.
The Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance crew are available 24/7, 365 days per year, providing lifesaving pre-hospital care to those who need it the most. The charity receives no government or NHS funding and relies solely on generous donations from its supporters to fund its vital missions – without this they wouldn’t be able to continue their lifesaving missions across Northamptonshire and further afield.
The charity is celebrating its 20th anniversary of providing its lifesaving service across Warwickshire and Northamptonshire in 2023 and is encouraging other pubs to join Pub Club and help save more lives.
