Continuing its tradition of supporting a local charity each year through a range of fundraising activities, GMcG Chartered Accountants has selected Air Ambulance NI as its charity partner for 2023.
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 Belfast, Lisburn and Portadown offices. This approach is adopted by the firm to ensure the charity partner is the choice of employees. GMcG Director Stephen Houston adds:
“Many of our employees have personal interest or experience with a range of local charities and it is with this in mind that we encourage them to provide charity nominations for our selection process.
All of the suggested charities are of course very worthwhile causes and we are delighted to have partnered with Air Ambulance NI for the year ahead. We are really looking forward to working with the Air Ambulance NI team on a variety of events and fundraising activities, with the aim of raising funds as well as raising awareness of the important and often life-saving work of the charity”.
Colleen Milligan, Business Development Project Manager at Air Ambulance NI, explains more about the important work of the charity:
“The Air Ambulance team are needed on average twice per day and can be airborne in about 5 minutes and provide interventions at scene that can be the difference between life and death.
As a local charity that relies so much on fundraising in aid of the service, all support is crucial and we are delighted to have the support of GMcG Chartered Accountants in 2023. Each day, Air Ambulance NI needs to raise £5,500 and all contributions make a difference.”
