Family of Randalstown man make donation to Air Ambulance in his memory

The family of the late Martin Lee, Randalstown who passed away peacefully on the 14 December 2021 have made a donation to the Air Ambulance NI Charity in his memory.

Martin’s wife Marina and sister Janet made the donation of £1130 to Air Ambulance NI as it was Martin’s wish to have donations in-lieu of flowers to the helicopter emergency medical service before he passed away.

Marina said:

“Martin was a keen motor biker his entire life and he knew the benefit that the air ambulance service could make after a serious accident. He made it clear before he passed away that he wanted donations to be made to the charity service as it had been there for so many of the motorbiking community in the past.”

Kerry Anderson from Air Ambulance NI Charity said:

“It was lovely to host Martin’s wife and sister at the Air Ambulance NI base recently and to accept their wonderful donation to the charity. This donation in Martin’s memory will help to ensure the service will continue to operate and be there for individuals with the aim of saving lives, brains and limbs. I also want to thank James Stevenson & Son Funeral Director who assisted in the management of the donations in-lieu of flowers too after Martin’s passing.”
