Football Ace Steve Bull shows support
Wolves legend Steve Bull hands over £6,000 to Midlands Air Ambulance and vows to continue supporting the Charity throughout 2011.
The former England and Wolves striker visited Cosford air base on 22nd December 2010 to meet the flight crew and get a behind the scenes glimpse of the rapid response Charity.
Bully’s donation will help fund three life-saving missions across the Midlands and marks the beginning of a number of joint fundraising initiatives as Midlands Air Ambulance celebrates its 20th anniversary.
“I wanted to support Midlands Air Ambulance because every time you see an accident on the other side of the road, all you do is go past it ‘rubber necking’,” says Steve, aged 45. “But one of these days it could be you and that’s when you will thank God there is an organisation like Midlands Air Ambulance to help.”
The cash was raised at the launch of the Steve Bull Foundation at the Molineux Stadium, home of Wolverhampton Wanderers, in August last year.
The Steve Bull Foundation supports organisations in the West Midlands which assist young people, the disabled, the homeless, the sick and the disadvantaged.
Birmingham Children’s Hospital, Macmillan’s Cancer Support and Promise Dreams also benefited from the launch party which raised £36,000 through ticket sales, auctions and raffles.
