New heights for air ambulance
The Freemasons’ Grand Charity has announced its first large grant of the year: £192,000 for air ambulance charities. Freemasons have been regular supporters of air ambulance charities since 2007, donating £1.3 million in total to 22 rescue services. Every air ambulance in England and Wales has received funding.
Air ambulance charities rely on voluntary donations to operate. Support from grant-makers such as the Grand Charity means that doctors and paramedics reach patients in emergency situations as quickly as possible – saving lives in the process.
Speaking about the donation, chief executive of The Freemasons’ Grand Charity, Laura Chapman, says: ‘We are delighted to be able to show our support for air ambulance charities once again.’
