Flying with the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance

As part of our on going commitment to “Making Building A Better Experience for All”, the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance was selected as the Heritage Skill Centres Site Charity for the duration of the construction project. 

So far we have raised over £300 for this charity and plan to continuing raising money into the New Year.  You can support the Air Ambulance by donating here.  We have also commissioned a 2 minute film to promote the vital work of the air ambulance, watch it by clicking here

As an East Midlands based construction contractor we are proud to support local charities when delivering projects.  Particularly as many of our projects are in rural areas or sites with difficult access. The Heritage Skills Centre is a BREEAM Very Good Training and Development Centre situated in the heart of Lincoln Castle, the first new build inside the confines of the Castle for over 100 years.

Over the course of the project Site Manager Peter Winson has been helping to raise money for the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance  by holding on site events such as fundraising lunches and coffee mornings which were well attended by the Castle Management Team, Court Staff, the and  Robert Woodhead employees.  Our Managing Director David Woodhead has personally offered to double what we raise on site.  We are awaiting to reveal the grand total in February when the Skills Centre is set to be officially opened.

The fundraising on site was recognised by the Considerate Constructors scheme, in awarding the site 36.5/40 a real achievement for the team and well above the industry’s national average.  The score places the site within the top 7.5% of sites registered to the scheme.

As part of the project and to support the National Air Ambulance week 24-30th September we have commissioned a short video to support the vital fundraising needed to keep the Air Ambulance flying and document the importance of the service the Charity provides.  This 2 minute video can be seen on our YouTube channel by clicking here

Jim Vicarage fundraising manager from Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire comments “we attend on average about a thousand incidents a year, I would like to say a big thank you to everyone involved in fundraising without your support we would be able to do what we do without it.”

Peter Winson, Site Manager at the Heritage Skills Centre commented “we chose the Air Ambulance as the Site Charity because of the vital work it does in the local community.  The nature of our jobs, the area we operate in makes the Air Ambulance a worth while cause.”

The Air Ambulance relies completely on public funding to operate.  You can help by visiting the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulances website by clicking here.  If you would like any further information about the charities Robert Woodhead support or would like to know more information about a particular project please contact us.
