Over £9,000 raised at Land’s End for Cornwall Air Ambulance
Posted on Oct 22, 2014
Visitors to the westernmost point of Cornwall continue to donate money in support of the busiest single helicopter air ambulance service in the South West.
Over the past two decades, a partnership between the world famous tourist attraction and the Cornwall Air Ambulance has continued to raise awareness of the challenging and lifesaving work undertaken by the charitable trust.
In the past four years alone, collection boxes, special events, and stalls have raised in excess of £9,000.00 for Cornwall Air Ambulance and the static decommissioned helicopter and display in the main square of the Cornish attraction continues to be a positive point of interest and information for thousands of visitors every year.
Martin Potter, Finance and Support Manager at Land’s End said
‘At Land’s End, we have experienced first-hand the vital work undertaken by the Cornwall Air Ambulance service to save lives and rescue casualties across the county. We feel it is important that we continue to highlight to our visitors some of the extreme challenges and conditions the rescue services face in remote and coastal locations in the South West.’
Susie Smith, Head of Fundraising for Cornwall Air Ambulance said
‘The ongoing support Land’s End are giving to this charity really is fantastic. The attraction and their visitors are so generous in their support of Cornwall Air Ambulance and the eye-catching display in the main square is a great way for visitors and locals alike to learn more about the vital work of this essential Cornish charity.’
