Matlock Town FC helps support the Local Air Ambulance

In the past 16 years the Air Ambulance Service has attended 40,000 missions nationally. Each mission currently costs £1700.

The service is regularly called upon in the Derbyshire Dales and the High Peak and during our collection activities we have been staggered by the number of people who have told us that the Air ambulance provided vital life saving support to themselves or family members.

The charity does not receive any government funding and relies solely on voluntary donations and support from our communities.

Steve Wain, a local District Councillor and the current Mayor of Matlock, has selected the Air Ambulance Service as his appointed charity as Civic Chair of the Derbyshire Dales.

Currently he has raised £3500 for the charity, but as you can see above, that would only fund two missions.

Steve approached Matlock Town who agreed that he could collect for the Air Ambulance Charity at their home game with Buxton FC on 27 December 2021.

Steve said, ‘ I am aware that Matlock Town Football Club are a community focussed organisation who value and wish to support their residents. I am thrilled that I am able to collect for this very important charity at the Buxton game. I hope that all the spectators will support the charity so we can raise a significant amount of money for this vital charity, which we all may need to use at some point.'

There will be collectors at this game so please take time to make a donation.
