MLP Injury Lawyers Altrincham support North West Air AmbulanceALTRINCHAM-based MLP Injury Lawyers has launched a support fund for the vital work of the North West Air Ambulance by committing to make a £200 donation to the charity for every new case it accepts.


To increase this financial support even further, the firm plans to also donate a percentage of profits from successful cases to the charity, which serves a population of eight million people across the North West from its helicopter bases at Barton and Blackpool.


Kevin Walker, partner at MLP Injury Lawyers, said:


“Many people mistakenly think the North West Air Ambulance is funded by the NHS when, in reality, it is solely reliant on donations, requiring nearly £5million per year to provide its life-saving services.


“The North West Air Ambulance greatly increases a patient’s chance of survival and dramatically improves speed of recovery, attributes which are aligned to our own ethos of client care and recovery support.


“It was clear the North West Air Ambulance was a perfect fit when we were looking for a charity to support.”

Carol Bonham, corporate partnership manager for North West Air Ambulance, said:


“We are very pleased to be teaming up with MLP Injury Lawyers. We are a charity, and it is important that we build partnerships with strong businesses to help us be there when people need us.


“l would like to thank MLP for their support.”
