Speaking on behalf of Greiner Packagings fundraising efforts, Ruth Spence, part of the Charity committee for Greiner Packaging said:

“We are delighted to be supporting AANI this year. The Air Ambulance provides vital assistance in life threatening situations across Northern Ireland, and I think most people will have seen it in the sky in recent months.

We are very much looking forward to this event and will continue to raise awareness, and funds in a number of planned events throughout this year.”
