Runway Runaround


Entries for a special fundraising challenge event in aid of Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust are gathering pace, with the UK’s first air ambulance helicopter pilot signing up.

Geoff Newman, a former Naval helicopter pilot, conceived the idea for Cornwall’s air ambulance, the UK’s first, and brought it to fruition in 1986.

His concept has been the catalyst for another 30 aircraft operating across the country, supported by 18 air ambulance charities.

To celebrate 25 years since the Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust took on the running of the service in 1987, Newman will be taking part in the Runway Runaround – a unique opportunity to run or walk a 10km or 4km course airside at Newquay Cornwall Airport.

The event takes place on Sunday, March 25 and entry packs are available by clicking here or calling 01726 890444.
