Friends Against Scams  

July’s speaker was Sophie, the newly appointed Community Fundraising Officer from the Great North Air Ambulance Service (GNAAS).  She was very informative about this service which is funded entirely by charity and serves Northumbria, Cumbria and County Durham.  

They are soon to be moving to new headquarters at Urlay Nook and we intend to organise a visit there in the near future.  There, the helicopter and crew will join the charity’s fundraising, lottery and administration teams. The site will house the North-East’s first Medical Centre of Excellence, providing training and education to pre-hospital clinicians from all over the world.
