The North West Air Ambulance is a charity funded entirely by donations and we need your help - It costs over £3 million a year to keep flying... Every day of the year the air ambulance attends to people with life threatening illnesses or injuries across the North west. The maximum flying time to the nearest appropriate hospital in the region is 10 minutes. It is this time that is crucial to a patients survival. Only with your support can we continue to operate and save lives.

Not many people know that the North West Air Ambulance is a Charity. They receive no public funding to maintain a vital service to the North West - in many cases a 'life saving' service.

To help them in a small way to raise the £4.5m p.a. required to maintain the operation, I'm taking on a personal challenge.

Well I did it - I cycled from London to Paris, setting off on the 14th August, arriving at the Eiffel Tower on the 17th. It was a hard but very rewarding experience - I'd definitely recommend it.

I maintained a blog during the event - you can read it here - go to I'll also posted photographs etc on Facebook.

Although the event is now completed, you can still make donations to NWAA!

Donating through this site is simple.

NWAA will receive your money quickly and easily and if you are a UK taxpayer an extra 25% in tax will be added to your gift at no cost to you.

Many thanks for your support,

Tony Lockwood
