Support UK have recently been given the opportunity to get involved in a local fundraising event, to raise as much money as possible for Magpas Air Ambulance.
The event, which took place at Letchworth Rugby Club where Martin has close ties, was a great success – eventually raising over £5,000. Martin, along with a team from Hand in Hands who hosted the event, were invited to Magpas headquarters in Cambridgeshire to officially hand over the whopping cheque. Martin commented “Magpas Air Ambulance do a phenomenal job, working tirelessly to help save lives. It is an honour to be in a position to provide some financial assistance to such a worthy cause. The Magpas team were so appreciative and made us feel incredibly welcome.
Following a very insightful talk on the service, we were given a tour of one of the helicopters and finished the morning with refreshments and a Q&A session. All in all, it was a very humbling visit”.
