Midlands Air Ambulance Charity Fundraising Reaches New Heights

The 35 metre high Ferris wheel will be located on Stone Street Square, opposite Dudley Museum and Art Gallery. The largest ever Ferris wheel to set up camp in the Black Country will offer panoramic views of Dudley and beyond.

From Saturday 12th March until Sunday 10th April, fundraisers from Midlands Air Ambulance Charity will be on hand to collect donations for the charity, as visitors admire and take rides on the Ferris wheel. 

Adam Williams, fundraising manager for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, says: “The charity is very excited to be associated with the Free Radio DY Eye Ferris wheel, and we look forward to welcoming visitors to the local attraction. Our fundraisers will be located at the entrance of the wheel with a decommissioned helicopter pod and Maac, the charity mascot, for children to have their picture taken with. 

“The vital service Midlands Air Ambulance Charity provides is funded only by donations from the general public and local businesses, so funds raised from events like this, help to fund further lifesaving missions.”
