A Kendal man who says he wouldn't have survived a dramatic car crash in the Lake District without the Great North Air Ambulance is raising funds for the charity which saved his life.

Bradley Airey's car careered off the road at Devil's Bridge, Kirkby Lonsdale, after driving into a diesel spillage.

Mr Airey spent 11-days in hospital, and suffered a fractured skull and broken femur.

The Great North Air Ambulance rushed him to the Royal Preston Hospital. He went on to make a full recovery.

On August 6th, he'll be competing with his cousin Sam Walker in the Total Warrior fitness endurance test, covering ten-miles, in the Lake District.

If it wasn't for charitable donations, the Great North Air Ambulance wouldn't be able to fly. I am extremely grateful for everything they did that day to help me.”
