Lord Combustion Services’ Charity Ball Raises Funds To Help Save Lives

Thursday 12th January 2023

Commercial heating and ventilation specialists, Lord Combustion Services, in Oldbury, has helped Midlands Air Ambulance Charity save lives by collecting £10,500 at a recent Charity Ball.

Last month, the charity welcomed Stuart Smith, managing director of Lord Combustion Services to its airbase at RAF Cosford for a cheque presentation for the funds raised at the 40th Anniversary Ball.

Lord Combustion Services raised a contribution equivalent to the funds needed for three air ambulance missions and five missions in the pre-hospital emergency service’s three critical cars. The total was raised through ticket sales generous donations on the night, a charity raffle, casino games and an auction at a dinner held at Birmingham’s Grand Hotel in November, which celebrated the company’s 40th anniversary year.

In total, 120 staff, suppliers, clients and business partners attended the event to mark four decades of progress by the business.

Managing director, Stuart Smith, said: “Our team were pleased to play their part in supporting such a good cause.

“As we look forward to building on our heritage, we wanted to give back to a lifesaving cause. We were delighted so many of our generous guests supported our fundraising efforts at such a wonderful occasion, which was enjoyed by everyone who attended.”

Jon Cottrell, senior partnership executive for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity attended the Charity Ball. He said: “On behalf of all crew and staff at the charity, we really appreciate the support from local businesses based within the communities we serve, just like Lord Combustion Services, who continue to be a valued corporate supporter. It was great to welcome Stuart at our Cosford Airbase and, showing him more about our lifesaving operations and what their lifesaving funds have gone towards. The money received by our charity will help make three helicopter missions and five critical car missions possible.”

At the 2021 Black Country Chamber of Commerce Awards, Emma Tibbetts won Director of the Year and Lord was named Service Business of the Year.
