Celebrate the summer with LNAA’s Great Big Staycation

Be in with a chance of winning a visit to the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance’s new HQ by taking part in the charity’s Great Big Staycation.

As holiday plans may not be panning out the way most of us have hoped, Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance (LNAA) has come up with a way to banish those holiday blues – while helping to save lives.

The Great Big Staycation is here to inspire you to make the most of your immediate surroundings.

Pitch a tent in the garden, take a mini-break in the campervan (on the driveway) or transform your home into a hotel.

Donate to LNAA the cost of a holiday treat, such as your favourite cocktail, deckchair hire, a bottle of sun cream or the bill for that slap-up meal.

And while you’re at it, why don’t you recreate your favourite holiday image? Tag the charity in your social media pics with #GreatBigStaycation and it will pick a winner, who will be invited to its new HQ, meet the crew and see the ambucopter for real.

“The impact of Covid-19 means we can’t go out to events or raise money in some of the more traditional ways we normally would. While this has been a challenging time and we are forecasting a drop in our income, we turned our thinking to the wonderful British summertime and what we could do to inspire people to take advantage of what they have on their doorsteps while we all continue to stay as safe as possible,” said Fundraising Director Jason Cater.

“We are really looking forward to seeing your pictures and hope that our supporters across Lincs & Notts will get creative. Hopefully some of us here at LNAA have provided a bit of inspiration with our own recreations.”
