The deadline for Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance’s competition to name its new Ambucopter is July 31.
The competition is open to children aged 12 and below in Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire.
The new, state-of-the-art Ambucopter (Air Ambulance helicopter) will fly into the RAF Waddington base later this summer and the charity wants to give it a friendly name. This name will also be given to the charity’s Ambucopter mascot who will travel the counties meeting children and teaching them about the charity.
Children just need to let the life-saving charity know what they would call the new Ambucopter and why. Entrants can simply email firstname.lastname@example.org with the name and explain why they chose it, in no more than 50 words. They of course mustn’t forget to include their own name and contact details.
As well as having the honour of naming the helicopter, there’s a fantastic prize for the best entry to the competition. The winning entrant, with their family, can visit the Air Ambulance airbase HQ. They’ll get to speak with the crew, learning how the life-saving missions are planned and carried out, and will take home a Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance goodie bag!
