NORWICH, Tuesday 19th June 2012 – Norwich International Fire Fighters Sky Dive for Local Charity
Always keen to help a worth cause, Norwich International Airport’s blue watch Fire Fighters, Karl Appleton and Mark Matless will be jumping from an aircraft 13,000ft high at speeds of 120mph and descending 5000ft back to land in just 40 seconds for their sky dive to raise vital funds for one of the airport’s chosen charities this year, the East Anglian Air Ambulance on
28th September 2012.
The East Anglian Air Ambulance now operates two fully medically equipped helicopters (Anglia One and Anglia Two) serving the people of Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Suffolk. Between the two helicopters they provide a life saving resource reaching patients quickly and if required, transporting them to the most suitable hospital (rather than the nearest) within minutes.
Karl Appleton said “We work closely with the Air Ambulance team at the airport and see what an invaluable service they provide to the wider communities across the four counties. Hopefully we won’t need them on the day! We couldn’t have chosen a more appropriate cause in the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
Andrew Bell, Chief Executive of Norwich International Airport, said:
“Norwich International Airport is proud to support this local charity. Our firemen do a fantastic job of ensuring fire safety at the airport and have stepped up yet again to help raise money for this worthy cause”
The East Anglian Air Ambulance relies entirely on independent fundraising and contributions from local businesses and on-going public support is essential to enable this vital service to continue in the region. To sponsor Karl and Mark go to www.justgiving.com/NIAfirefighterskydive
