North Coal is proud to donate $5000 to the Angel Flight East Kootenay program. Angel Flight’s mission is to fly fully ambulatory cancer patients and those with incommunicable diseases with their caregivers from the Kootenays to treatment centers in Kelowna.
Currently, patients must make the over 600km drive or take a commercial flight. Angel Flight East Kootenay is piloted by licensed volunteers with years of experience. The program is new and currently raising funds with hopes to make its first flight this summer.
“North Coal believes in donating to programs that address community issues. Getting the health care you need and having access to specialists can be difficult in the Kootenays. This program will relieve one piece of the stress put on families dealing with an illness,” says John Pumphrey, president of North Coal.
Brent Bidston, a volunteer with Angel Flight East Kootenay notes, “this donation will allow Angel Flight East Kootenay to provide six flights this summer. We hope that those flights will raise awareness of the program while transporting families in need”.
Angel Flight East Kootenay will fly in light aircraft with volunteer pilots from Sparwood, Elk Valley Airport to Kelowna with planes provided by Elk Valley Air Search and Rescue. Moving forward they hope to have flights operated from other airports in the Kootenays and more volunteer professional pilots will be recruited as demand for flights increase.
