Gamestec drive to save lives

Willenhall-based Gamestec is supporting Midlands Air Ambulance by donating a penny for every mile two special air ambulance branded trucks are driven.

The leading gaming machine operator has made an initial donation of £250 to mark the start of the partnership.

Staff at Gamestec’s Whillenhall RDC were asked to nominate a charity they would like to support and Midlands Air Ambulance proved a popular choice.

Manager of the Gamestec Willenhall Anita Bickerstaffe said: “My colleagues are out on the roads everyday, sadly this means many have witnessed road accidents and seen the Midlands Air Ambulance in action. Seeing the Air Ambulance attending accidents really brings home what an important job they do, so we all agreed they were a fitting charity to support.”

Midlands Air Ambulance would like to thank everyone at Gamestec for their support and looks forward to seeing the air ambulance trucks on the road!
