Daisy Chain Benevolent Fund £97000
Daisy Chain Benevolent Fund has presented Midlands Air Ambulance with a cheque for a whopping £97,000 after raising money throughout the year to help the emergency response charity.
The money has been raised across the seven charity shops based in Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Staffordshire and Worcestershire where the fund raises money for Midlands Air Ambulance charity six days a week.
Greg Rowe, Trustee Chairman and Finance Director of Daisy Chain Benevolent Fund said; “All our staff and volunteers have worked very hard to ensure they raise as much as possible from each donation that comes through the shops doors. We are therefore once again thrilled to be able to issue such a significant amount to the Midlands Air Ambulance. The Trustees were keen that the money be used to help maintain helicopter bases, renew equipment and fund rescue missions and we delighted that this will be so.”
Head of fundraising for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, Jason Levy said; “Daisy Chain Benevolent Fund has been supporting Midlands Air Ambulance since 2002. The charity needs £6 million pounds a year to operate and receives no government or national lottery funding. The charity relies solely on public donations and this fantastic donation will go towards saving lives across the region. We look forward to working together for many years.”
