Air Ambulance NI

Air Ambulance Northern Ireland’s operational helicopter carries a crew comprising of pilot, doctor, and paramedic, 365 days of the year operating for twelve hours every day.  They attend some of the most traumatic medical incidents across the province and are dedicated to delivering the very best possible pre- hospital care, both at the scene and whilst transferring the patient to the most appropriate hospital for their specific injuries. What is not widely known is that AANI is a charity.  Each day costs in the region of £5,500 and £2m is needed each year to keep the air ambulance service operational.  They rely entirely on support from the public and local businesses.

Glebe House

Harmony Community Trust is a cross community organisation that promotes community relations and social inclusion.  Its main base is a sixteen-acre wildlife area at Kilclief, close to the shores of Strangford Lough, from which it delivers community relations, social inclusion and respite programmes on a year round basis.  They strive to enable all people to explore divisive barriers and to develop the self-confidence to build mutual respect, tolerance and trust through positive shared experiences.
