Worshipful Master's Charities
When a Worshipful Master is installed into the chair of the lodge he has the opportunity to nominate one or more charities to benefit from fundraising throughout his term (normally one or two years).
This year our Worshipful Master; Geoff, has chosen Midlands Air Ambulance as a regional charity and Chaddesley Care Cafe as a local charity.
Please find details below and if you are in a position to contribute then links can be found below how and where to donate.
Midlands Air Ambulance is a charity organisation based in the United Kingdom that provides air ambulance services to people who are critically ill or injured. It operates three helicopters, each staffed with a pilot, a critical care paramedic, and a doctor, who are specially trained to deliver advanced pre-hospital medical care at the scene of an accident or emergency.
The service covers a large area in the Midlands region of England, including the counties of West Midlands, Staffordshire, Shropshire, Worcestershire, and Herefordshire. It is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and can reach any location within the region in under 20 minutes.
Midlands Air Ambulance is funded entirely by donations from the public, and does not receive any government funding. The charity aims to raise awareness about the importance of air ambulance services, and to encourage people to support the organization through fundraising and donations.
Since its establishment in 1991, Midlands Air Ambulance has responded to over 54,000 missions and helped to save countless lives. Its services have been vital in providing emergency medical care to people in remote or hard-to-reach areas, as well as in responding to major incidents such as road accidents, sports injuries, and medical emergencies.
