Help Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance
8:51am 28th August 2012
Organise an event to help the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance.
That's the call from its chief executive officer as National Air Ambulance Week approaches.
Bill Sivewright, Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance Chief Executive Officer said, “We have been delighted by the response of the public in showing their support for NAAW.
“Many people have already got in touch to tell us their plans. Schools are getting involved by holding mufti/dress down days. Others are organising sponsored runs or bike rides with their friends and family and some people are even doing parachute jumps in aid of the Charity.
“It’s not too late to get involved. There are initiatives already in place which are simple to implement and need very little pre-planning. We can provide support and all the encouragement you need.
“Whatever you decide to do, rest assured that all monies raised will stay locally and help us raise the £1.5 million a year it costs to keep us flying.”
So far schools are putting together 'dress down days', others are doing sponsored events to raise cash and highlight awareness of the service.
National Air Ambulance Week starts on September 24th
