Vale Press were delighted to hand over a cheque for £705 to Midlands Air Ambulance Charity. Eddy Stowe, Sales Director at Vale Press hands over the cheque to Erin from Midlands Air Ambulance.
If you see a red air ambulance flying over the Vale Press factory in South Worcestershire/North Cotswolds then it’s probably a “Midlands Air Ambulance”. And help is on its way quickly to someone in need. Midlands Air Ambulance is the charity responsible for funding and operating three air ambulances serving the communities of six Midlands counties: Gloucestershire, Worcestershire, Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire and the West Midlands. This constitutes the largest air ambulance operating region in the UK.
Since 1991, the charity has responded to more than 50,000 missions averaging 2,000 per year, making it one of the longest established and busiest air ambulance organisations in the UK. Midlands Air Ambulance receives no Government or National Lottery funding. Each Midlands Air Ambulance mission costs £2,500 and in excess of £9 million is needed each year to keep its’ three air ambulances operational, which is donated entirely by the public and local businesses. That’s why donations and fundraising are so essential and why Vale Press were keen to nominate Midlands Air Ambulance to receive the raffle proceeds from the Stratford Sporting Club Dinner that Vale Press sponsored recently.
