Grant UK has raised a further £10,000 for Wiltshire Air Ambulance, a local charity that the company has supported since 2019.
In 2022, either side of Grant UK’s move to new premises, the team organised and took part in bake sales, wellness initiatives and other fun-filled events. The Christmas staff raffle returned for another year as well, with suppliers providing generous prizes and the ticket sales to staff raising over £1,000 for the charity.
“Everyone at Grant UK has enjoyed fundraising and supporting Wiltshire Air Ambulance for another year,” said Anna Wakefield, head of marketing at Grant UK. “We have been working closely with this great local charity for several years now and our enthusiasm to raise money for Wiltshire Air Ambulance has increased year on year. We are thrilled to present this new donation of £10,000 which brings our grand total raised for the Charity to £45,000.”
Wiltshire Air Ambulance corporate partnerships lead, Naomi Barker, said: “Each year we need to raise £4 million to keep the helicopter flying and continue saving lives. We receive no regular direct Government funding or National Lottery, so we have to rely on generous donations from the public and local businesses, such as Grant UK, to help support our lifesaving work.
“This latest donation from Grant UK means the company has now donated over £45,000 to Wiltshire Air Ambulance in the space of three years, which is enough to keep us operational for four days! We can’t thank all the staff at Grant UK enough.”
