Bluebird Staff Choose Air Ambulance As Charity Of Year
12:04am 21st December 2014
A lifesaving service is being given a helping hand after staff at Bluebird Care Dorset voted to make Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance their charity of the year.
The team will be helping the vital service by holding events during 2015 and putting out a collection tin in their offices, which they hope will raise £5,000.
Director of Bluebird Care Dorset, Chris Scriven said: "My understanding is that for each mission flown by the Air Ambulance £2,500 of public support is needed."
"We therefore have set ourselves a fund-raising target of £5,000 for the year as it would be great to have covered the cost of two missions."
"At Bluebird Care Dorset, our care at home services can often involve helping people to get back onto their feet and regain independence after an accident or operation."
"We recognise that the Air Ambulance works at very much the acute end of this type of service and we have a huge amount of respect for that they do."
