NACFB unveils charity partner for 2024

Association to support air ambulance services across UK

The NACFB’s 2024 charity partner has been revealed as Air Ambulances UK, the national charity supporting the lifesaving work of the UK’s air ambulance charities, enabling them to save even more lives every day.

Chosen by the trade body after learning how the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance was able to support one of the Association’s colleagues, a fundraising target of £15,000 has been set. An Enthuse page has been set up to collect donations.

In addition to raising funds, the NACFB plans to help in increase local and national awareness of the charities’ essential pre-hospital, critical care. Throughout the UK, air ambulance services are collectively dispatched more than 107 times each day, bringing the emergency department to patients who have suffered a life-threatening or life-changing trauma or medical emergency.

Commenting on the partnership, NACFB managing director, Norman Chambers, said: “Anyone, anywhere, can become a patient at any time and each mission costs on average £4,510 which is funded almost entirely by public donations. Our support will help to fund not only these missions, but also innovation and development to ensure the air ambulance charities can continue to provide a world-class service across the UK.”

A variety of special fundraising activities will be held at all the NACFB’s annual events throughout 2024 including Commercial Finance Expo in June, the Commercial Broker Awards in September and the Commercial Lender Awards in November.

Association Members, Patrons and other Partners will also be encouraged to come up with their own fundraising ideas and participate in the activities organised by the both AAUK and the local air ambulance charities across the UK.

Anyone wishing to donate, can do so here.

The NACFB community has raised in excess of £100,000 for good causes over the last five years, including The Newman Holiday Trust and Young Lives vs Cancer (formerly CLIC Sargent).
