Two new directors have been recruited to a lifesaving charity.
The East Anglian Air Ambulance has appointed Melanie Nightingale as director of fundraising after the charity’s fundraising targets increased following the organisation’s start of night flying operations earlier this year.
Lorna Garner also joins the charity as director of corporate services.
Ms Nightingale joins the air ambulance following thirteen years as a consultant where she helped charities, including those in the health sector, to establish significant development and growth.
Ms Garner’s career in the NHS included the position of director of the Critical Care Network for Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire where she lead the strategic direction and quality of care delivery for critically ill patients across the three counties. She was also chairman of the Critical Care Networks of England, Wales and Northern Ireland where she worked with the Department of Health and professional bodies as the lead representative of Critical Care.
