Gateway2Lease Gears Up Charity Support

Gateway2Lease is a family owned business based in rural Worcestershire, providing a specialist service for car and van leasing in the UK.

The company directors were keen to make a difference to the community by fundraising for a local charity, and they have always been in awe of the fantastic work that Midlands Air Ambulance Charity does, reaching and treating those in urgent need of medical attention within the Golden Hour.

Rob Marshall, operations director at Gateway2Lease, said: “We are very much looking forward to arranging fundraising events and also plan to donate on a monthly basis to support the annual fundraising requirements of the charity.”

Michelle McCracken, fundraising manager in Worcestershire for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, added: “Our three air ambulance helicopters attend up to 2,000 incidents each year, and almost half involve road traffic incidents. With each mission costing the charity £2,500 on average, which we rely entirely on the generosity of local businesses and communities for, we are extremely grateful to the team at Gateway2Lease for their pledged lifelong support and we look forward to working with them to ensure their fundraising is fun and engaging.”
