363

The Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance (LNAACT) has revealed the winners of this year’s Christmas Super Draw.

As part of the draw, which was carried out by the LNAACT’s on duty medical crew, winners from across the two counties were selected at random.

The winning ticket, which was worth an incredible £3000, went to a lucky recipient in Bourne, Lincolnshire. Mrs Broadhurst from Mansfield claimed £500 as second prize, and the third prize of £250 went to a delighted winner in Newark.

Mrs Broadhurst, who won £500 as part of the Super Draw, said: “This is great news, it’s come at just the right time!

“We’re looking at going on a family holiday to Tenerife next year and this will definitely help.”

Sally Crawford, Head of Fundraising & Communications at the Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance, said: “Thank you to everyone who has supported this year’s Christmas Super Draw, we’ve raised over £60,000!

“As a charity, we are totally reliant on the support of local communities, and every penny we receive helps us to keep our helicopter in the skies and continue to save lives every day.

“Congratulations to all of our Super Draw winners and we hope you enjoy your winnings during the festive period!”

The Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance is at the forefront of Helicopter Emergency Services in the UK, with the helicopter and crew attending an average of three potentially life-saving missions every single day, 365 days of the year.

This year, the charity has started a phased approach to flying 24-hours a day, helping to provide the best pre-hospital critical care possible across Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire. Launched in October, the medical team are currently operating a 24-hour service every Friday morning through to Monday morning. Ongoing plans are in place to continue to expand the service next year as we work towards full 24/7 coverage.
