MAAC Scoops Community Grant In Stourbridge!

Midlands Air Ambulance Charity has been awarded £3,000 in the Lloyds Bank Community Fund 2014 in Stourbridge.

Following votes from members of the public the charity has been awarded a grant from Lloyds Bank to enable it to continue doing good work in the community.

The grant will help enable the charity to continue its crucial life saving work across not only the local community of Stourbridge but across six counties, serving in excess of 6 million people.

Sofia Voutianitis, the charity’s corporate fundraising manager said: “The Lloyds Bank Community Fund will make a huge difference to Midlands Air Ambulance Charity and we are so grateful to everybody who voted for us to receive the grant.

“The charity is funded entirely by the generosity of local individuals and businesses so without this type of income every year we simply wouldn’t be able to keep doing what we’re doing.”

The Lloyds Bank Community Fund was set up to help local people across England, Wales, and Northern Ireland, the Channel Islands and Isle of Man to have a positive impact at the heart of their community by giving grants to 1,400 local good causes in 350 communities.

Nearly 1.5 million votes were cast for good causes across the country during the voting that took place between 2 September and 10 October. Over 700,000 people will be benefit either directly or indirectly from the good work the 1,400 good causes across the country will be able to deliver as a result of receiving a Community Fund 2014 award.
