The Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance (LNAA) is appealing for bikers to help raise essential funding by riding through both counties between now and October 4th 2020 

Because the usual 62-mile ‘Ride to Save Lives’ event has had to be cancelled this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, bikers are being encouraged to ride throute safely within their social bubbles instead and make a donation in lieu of the customary entry fee. 

Furthermore, bikers who ride the route are encouraged to share their photos on the LNAA social media channels too. 

Fundraising Events Coordinator Kelly Geoghegan said: “Our annual ‘Ride to Save Lives’ event has always been a hit with our local biking community, with hundreds of riders taking to the streets to support our wonderful charity. We are truly devastated to see the event cancelled this year, and we know that many of our supporters will have been disappointed by this. 
“We’ve launched this year’s Ride the Route so that our amazing supporters can still get on their motorbikes to support LNAA, whilst helping us raise vital funds. We were hoping to raise around £12,000 at this year’s RTSL, so we’re hoping that with the support of our amazing biking community, we can help make up this shortfall. 
“We are hoping that many of our biker friends will be taking to the streets of Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire to help keep our Ambucopter flying, and we are looking forward to welcoming back to our next RTSL event in 2021.”
