Wiltshire recruiters, 24-7 Staffing, are flying high with charity donation to Wilts Air Ambulance
24-7 Donation to Wilts Air Ambulance
The generous team at leading independent recruiter 24-7 Staffing have got on board with their fundraising and netted over £500 for Wiltshire Air Ambulance.
Staff at the Chippenham-based firm made monthly donations over the past FY and raised £565.
‘We pick a charity every year. Those who want to take part make a donation every month,’ said company MD. Julian Thompson. ‘In addition we have a monthly draw. A member of the team wins half the accumulated sum and the other half goes to the chosen charity.
‘Wiltshire Air Ambulance is a great, local cause. We now need to decide which charity to support for the current financial year. Others we have helped in the past include Business Against Poverty.’
Wiltshire Air Ambulance
Established in 1990, Wiltshire Air Ambulance needs to raise £3.75 million a year to keep its lifesaving service operational. The charity must rely on generous donations from the public as it gets no regular direct funding from the government or from National Lottery grants.
Wiltshire Air Ambulance fundraising manager, Des Regan, added: “It’s been such a tough time for all charities. The Coronavirus pandemic forced us to cancel all fundraising events in 2020. That cost us around £500,000 in income. That said, the response from the public and businesses like 24-7 Staffing, has overawed us. We can’t thank them enough for supporting our charity.
