A HUSBAND whose wife was saved by the actions of an air ambulance team has raised more than £2,000 as a thank you.

Nat and Nan Graham, from Newbiggin, were on holiday in Northern Ireland last August when Nan suffered a severe stroke.

With the help of the Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS) and the Great North Air Ambulance, Nat was able to get Nan back to the north east.

Nan was in Wansbeck for five weeks and has now moved to a nursing home in Morpeth.

Nat has been collecting money on behalf of the air ambulance since their return to the UK, and last Friday the 84-year-old presented a cheque to the service at Newbiggin Salvation Army Hall for £2,035.

“I would like to thank all who have given so generously to this worthy appeal,” he said.

“My heartfelt thanks to everyone who made it possible to bring my wife home, this is a thank you to you.”
