A bumper cheque has been presented to the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance this week with the proceeds of a fundraising event at the Lighthouse Pub in Burnham-On-Sea.
A family fun day and music event was held earlier this month for the air ambulance charity, raising an impressive £1,220.
The cheque was presented to the Air Ambulance fundraisers on Tuesday (August 27th) during a handover at The Lighthouse pub.
Joint fundraiser Rob Coombes said: “I want to thank everyone for their support, and help with running the event during the day.”
Air ambulance fundraiser Anita Townsend added: “Thank you for this cheque. This is our 19th year of operation, and our third air ambulance. We fly for approximately 19 hours a day in double shifts. Each lift costs approximately £3,000 and operating the service costs approximately 4 million pounds per year so this is much appreciated.”
