QVMCC  1st Annual Air Ambulance Appeal 2008
Kells To Kells Charity Bike Run To The Kells Road Races Sat 19th  July
This Year’s Races Sponsored By Adelaide  Insurance Services

Ireland Air Ambulance will be the 17th Independant Air Ambulance Service operating   in the UK and Ireland.
Despite the unshakable knowledge that these services are vital, they are run   by professionals BUT funded by a mixture of Charitable Donations and Corporate Funding. There is no service of this kind   on the island of Ireland.
But that is about to change . . . . . . . . with your help!!
This emergency service will be operating 365 days a year. Not only will there   be a fully trained Trauma doctor and Emergency Trauma paramedic on board this fully equipped emergency medical helicopter,   they will also have the information available toassess which is the best hospital to take the patient to that is best suited   to dealing with that type if injury, whether it be a head, spinal or limb or other.
From a 999 call the Air Ambulance will be tasked, airborne and en route in   under 3 minutes!
The service will cost approximately £2.5 million per annum.   

Quay Vipers MCC have recognised the importance of such a valuable resource   in the province and therefore decided to make this appeal an annual event to assist in the continuous costs of providing   this service. The Kells to Kells ride out is the first of many Air Ambulance fundraising events the club will be organising   throughout 2008. Adelaide   Insurance Services have kindly donated £200 to start the appeal off as they are the major   sponsors of this year’s Kells Road Races.

The 2008 Kells to Kells Rideout will be run in two stages.
Leaving 11am Kells Co. Antrim to M1 Junction 8 Sprucefield for a 30 minute stop for those who need fuel. This gives an opportunity for bikers from the Co. Down/Armagh regions to join the ride out if unable to make the Kells start. For those unable to continue on to Kells Co. Meath the Sprucefield stop offers the local biker an opportunity to show support in raising funds for the air ambulance by participating in the shorter Kells start to Sprucefield stretch.

The second stage is a non-stop run from Sprucefield to Kells Co. Meath arriving mid afternoon at Fairgreen in Kells town centre to an atmosphere of live entertainment and trade stalls for the biker. Camping is available for those who wish to stay for the Sunday races.
