The Wiltshire Air Ambulance and its heroic paramedics have been saving people’s lives for 30 years now, and they rely on the support of the public to keep doing this! The air ambulance operates up to 19 hours a day and can reach anywhere in Wiltshire in just 11 minutes. It’s important for us to join in with fundraising events to show our gratitude to them!
Smarter Media participated in Wiltshire Air Ambulances ‘The sky’s the limit’ challenge! We were given £50 with the task to stretch that money as far as possible by creating an event to raise money for the Wiltshire Air Ambulance. The challenge is sponsored by Chippenham Motor Company, and the Wiltshire Air Ambulance ambassador is Paul Martin, host of BBC’s Flog it!
Each business is given four months to plan and hold an event, with special awards going to the most creative events held and those events that raised the most money. Many businesses have been taking part in the challenge; holding car washes, bake sales, quiz nights and other fun events for colleagues, family and friends to enjoy.
Here at Smarter Media, we held a Curry Night at the Khyber in Swindon. We invited members of our Smarter team as well as their friends and family to come along and enjoy a night of tasty curry, fun and laughter – it was a great night!
We’re pleased to confirm that our event raised £464 for the Wiltshire Air Ambulance charity! We want to say a big thank you to everyone who attended the event and donated money towards a great cause.
The Wiltshire Air Ambulance needs to raise £3.75 million a year to be able to continue saving peoples lives – that’s the equivalent of £10,000 a day! As a result, it’s great to help in any way you can and any donation, big or small, is always greatly appreciated. Click here for more information.
