The Great North Air Ambulance Service (GNAAS) operates three helicopters, 365 days a year, across the North-East, North Yorkshire and Cumbria. GNAAS crews respond to around 1,000 call outs each year and on board our aircraft are specialist trauma doctors and paramedics, who bring accident and emergency expertise to the scene. Whether it’s in a city centre or a remote mountain, our medics respond to wherever they are needed in the shortest space of time. The helicopters are never more than a 15-minute flight from the nearest hospital. We are looking for sponsors to support our continuing work
Appleby in Westmorland
The Appleby Hub on Chapel Street is run by Cumbria based charity the Oaklea Trust. We host a monthly Hubcraft market on the last Saturday of every month, which features lots of local crafts and produce. Our Community Café is now up and running too, serving delicious homemade artisan food for breakfast and lunch. At the moment the café is open Wednesday to Friday, but we are aiming for more days soon! A visit to the café ties in perfectly with a browse around the Rotary second hand bookshop. Launched to the community in May 2016, the Hub has undergone some major recovery work and refurbishment since suffering damage in the floods in 2015. We have regular classes and groups throughout the week and a busy Facebook page to keep everyone up to date. From Art groups to Moky Fit we have something for everyone. We also have space to hire, with our spacious main hall, the Bennett room, and our cosy studio spaces which are available for long term lease.
