Racing for Lincolnshire & Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance

L J Fairburn and Son Limited is raising valuable funds for the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance. A team of eight was racing from Riseholme Road to Lincoln Castle in the Lincoln 10K Active Nation Road Race.
The team of hot footed local egg producers regularly support the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance with one pence for every dozen eggs sold being donated to the charity. Every time customers buy Fairburn’s Lincolnshire Free Range eggs in Co-op and ASDA stores in the region the charity benefits.
Sarah Louise Fairburn, Brand Director at L J Fairburn and Son, said: “The Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance is a charity close to our hearts. “We support the air ambulance on a daily basis and have so far raised well over £2000 for the dedicated medical air service which is so important to everyone in our locality.”
Sally Crawford, Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance Deputy Chief Executive and Business Manager said: “We rely on community events like the Lincoln 10K to raise the £1.8 million needed to fly the helicopter. It’s fantastic that individuals and businesses like L J Fairburn and Son can come together to support us.”
