The West Lancashire Freemasons’ Charity donated a new trailer to the North West Air Ambulance in 2004. The trailer has been in use continually by the NWAA fund raising team to raise awareness of its life saving work across the North West region.
The WLFC was recently made aware of the need to renovate and service the trailer. The charities trustees decided to approve a grant for £3,000 to pay for the trailer to get a makeover, thus ensuring the NWAA fund raising team can continue to raise awareness of their work at fundraising events around the North West.
The trailer was formally handed back to Louise Lloyd (NWAA Regional fund raising manager) at the WLFC headquarters in Huyton by Colin Rowling (chairman of the grant committee and many of the volunteers who man the office in Huyton and who are normally not seen as they work tirelessly to ensure the work of the charity is carried out.
Louise said: “We would like to thank the West Lancashire Freemasons’ Charity for their continued support over the last 11 years. Firstly for providing the funds to buy the trailer and now for helping keeping it in action. As a charity that is totally reliant on public donations it is important that we have the trailer so that we can raise our visibility across the North West.”
