The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
Tattenhall Beer Festival Committee: August 2016
Our Charity Beer Festival is drawing near. We include two stories relating to each of our designated charities. Last year we were able to donate £1250 to each charity that we supported, so this really is one of Tattenhall's major fundraising events of the year.
Our first piece relates to the North West Air Ambulance Charity ....
For over 15 years the North West Air Ambulance Charity has provided the rapid pre-hospital care needed to make a life changing difference. They operate three helicopters, flying 365 days a year with doctors and paramedics on board providing emergency medical treatment when time is critical.
Anyone, of any age, anywhere may one day need their care. Because they can avoid problems of distance and congestion, they're never further than 10 minutes to the nearest hospital in the region. However, it is the speed in which they can travel to the region's specialist trauma hospitals that can make a life changing difference. Trauma patients need to receive treatment quickly in order to prevent death or long-term disability.
Rapid pre-hospital care
In the cases of major trauma, minutes can make a difference in terms of survival and early recovery. Working closely with the North West Ambulance Service, their advanced trauma team of doctors and paramedics can provide effective treatment within the vital minutes after an injury or severe illness.
This often requires their doctors and paramedics to stabilise a patient's condition, undertaking an initial assessment and often delivering early lifesaving treatment. Information then can be fed directly to the designated trauma hospital, saving seconds when you or a loved one need it the most.
Whether flying to the North West's busy motorways, remote countryside or city centres, they cover 5,500 square miles and provide an urgent lifesaving service to the 8 million people of the North West and its visitors each year.
The North West Air Ambulance is a vital emergency service for the North West in general and Tattenhall and District in particular. This is why the Tattenhall Beer Festival Committee has decided to support this worthy charity.
By sponsoring and/or attending this year's very popular Tattenhall Charity Beer Festival (14th and 15th October), you will help to maintain such a vital service which we sincerely hope you will never need.
