We made it! after bucket collections, cake sales, raffles and entertainment throughout the year, and of course, the White Horse Challenge - which took us on a 52 mile walk across the 'White Horses' back in July. What was it all for, we hear you ask? Why - for Wiltshire Air Ambulance of course - and we are delighted to announce we smashed our target of £8904... with four months still to go!
This specific target was set to provide enough funding to keep the air ambulance flying for one day!
Raising awareness and funds for Wiltshire Air Ambulance is also extremely important to a great deal of people within the Wiltshire area and beyond. Kenresa Stratford, Fundraising Co-ordinator at Wiltshire Air Ambulance said: “We are extremely pleased to be working with Emery Gate Shopping Centre, the effort that has gone into their fundraising has been really extraordinary. As a charity, we need to raise £3.25 million a year to keep flying and saving lives, relying almost entirely on the support of the community and businesses of Wiltshire. We’re grateful to Emery Gate for being so enthusiastic in their approach in supporting us."
