Huncote  Helps Helipads for Hospitals

Local groups in Huncote and Croft have been collecting cans.The cans will be turned into a helipad so Air Ambulances can deliver patients direct to the emergency department at Leicester Royal Infirmary, rather than having to waste precious time transferring critically-ill patients to wheeled ambulances for the last threequarters of a mile of the journey.

Since January 2020 over 6,000 cans have been collected.
