County Air Ambulance Trust Affinity Account

County Air Ambulance Trust Affinity Account

Leek United are proud to have teamed up with the County Air Ambulance Trust to launch a savings account that enables you to help this life saving emergency service whilst you contribute to your own life savings.

The Air Ambulance service makes emergency medical treatment available throughout the region in minutes and its ability to provide skilled treatment and fast transport saves an average of one life every four weeks.

The cost of operating the County Air Ambulance Service is funded entirely through charitable support.

The more you save, the greater the donation we will make each year towards the cost of running this vital emergency service – at no cost to you.
