Dalton Park raises over £6500 for the Great North Air Ambulance Service

Wednesday 22nd March 2023

Dalton Park has donated £6,516 to the Great North Air Ambulance Service following a four-year fundraising partnership.

Funds have been raised through collection points in stores, the Giving Well in the centre of the mall and donations at special events.

The Great North Air Ambulance Service brings pioneering pre-hospital care to the scene, rescuing hundreds of severely injured or ill patients every year. It is not funded by the NHS and relies on the generosity of the public and organisations.

Richard Kaye, Centre Manager at Dalton Park, said:

“We’ve really enjoyed working with the inspirational people at the Great North Air Ambulance Service and our stores, and shoppers, have been hugely supportive in our efforts.

“The Great North Air Ambulance Service receives thousands of call outs and saves countless lives every year and we’re proud to contribute to their cause.”

Sophie Snowdon, Regional Fundraising Lead for Great North Air Ambulance Service, added: “Dalton Park has provided invaluable support, both in raising funds and increasing awareness, over the last four years and we are extremely grateful to the team.

“It is now time to hand over the reins to another charity so they can benefit from this amazing opportunity.

“We want to thank Dalton Park for everything and look forward to working with them on other projects in the coming months.”
