Fenland man continues his canny idea to help East of England Air Ambulance after family's miracle escape




A Fenland pensioner who launched a fundraising effort for the East of England Air Ambulance earlier this summer has learned just how vital the service is.

Mick Howard, 74, has been collecting empty drinks cans and crushing them with a home-made press at his Wisbech home since lockdown began with the aim of getting the used metal baled, weighed and cashed-in to provide much needed funding for the air ambulance.

In June the Citizen exclusively highlighted Mick’s plan with the former lorry driver explaining at the time that having witnessed accidents up and down the country during his driving days he understood the essential part air ambulances play in saving people’s live.
