GMcG Managing Director Susan Dunlop was delighted to present a cheque for £13,000 to Air Ambulance NI on 9 January 2024. This is a record charity donation from the firm, after a tremendous year of fundraising activity in support of the firm’s 2023 charity partner.

Air Ambulance NI is the charity that works in partnership with the Northern Ireland Ambulance Service to provide the Helicopter Emergency Medical Service. The decision to partner with this charity was the result of a voting and selection process involving employees from across GMcG’s three offices. This approach is adopted by the firm each year to ensure the charity partner is the choice of employees.

Susan Dunlop commented:

“This is an incredible amount raised by the firm and testament to the charity that so many people dug deep for such a worthy cause. We were genuinely overwhelmed with the level of support from clients, colleagues and contacts of the firm.

The fundraising was also the result of hard work and creativity from many of our employees who organised and participated in a range of activities, from marathon running to bake sales and even a sponsored silence. Huge thanks to all who participated and of course to the many clients and friends of the firm who donated so generously during the year”.

Colleen Milligan, Business Development Project Manager at Air Ambulance NI, adds:

“From all the team here at Air Ambulance NI we want to say a very sincere thank you to GMcG Chartered Accountants for choosing to support the Air Ambulance in 2023.

Reaching a medical emergency in rapid time with highly skilled clinicians can mean the difference between life and death.  From roadside blood transfusions to performing emergency surgery to anaesthesia, the crew is specially trained to deliver pre-hospital emergency care to both children and adults.

Each time the helicopter lifts off we are aware that someone is in great need and that, thanks to the support of GMcG Chartered Accountants staff, their families and clients who donated to their activities so generously, the HEMS team can offer the best chance of saving a life.”
