Support the Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance at Carlisle fixture

City players had a behind-the-scenes look at the Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance HQ ahead of the charity’s visit to Saturday’s fixture against Carlisle United.

As part of the partnership between the Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance (LNAA) and the club, members of the life-saving air ambulance team will be at the Carlisle fixture to help raise awareness and funds for the charity.

Some of their volunteers will be around the ground with collection buckets and there is also set to be a flypast of the iconic yellow helicopter over the LNER Stadium at around 2.50pm, subject to the crew not being called out to a mission.

City's players will also warm-up in Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance t-shirts ahead of the match.

Earlier in the week Lasse Sorensen, Ethan Erhahon and Alex Mitchell joined City’s medical staff Kieran Walker and Elliot Howell in a tour of the HQ near RAF Waddington to learn about their work.

The City squad were shown around the facilities and received talks from head of operations Chris Bailey, pilot Clive Sturdy, and paramedic Matt Burns about their roles and responsibilities within the charity.

Chris said: "We are delighted to be invited to be part of the match experience at Lincoln City this coming weekend and spread the word about the vital life-saving service our crew of pilots, doctors and paramedics deliver, every day of the year to people in the communities of Lincs and Notts.

"We are a charity and need to raise £10 million this year to continue to fly our helicopter and keep our critical care cars on the road.

"Unless called out for a mission, the supporters can expect to see the helicopter flying over the stadium and there will also be an army of fundraisers and volunteers with collection buckets in bright t-shirts around the grounds to spread the word about what we do.

"Please do support Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance this weekend and help us to deliver the most advanced pre-hospital emergency medicine to more patients when they need us most."
