Air ambulance lifts off with help from Hamilton Acorn

Published:  13 May, 2014

Attleborough-based Hamilton Acorn has donated almost £1,000 to its chosen charity of 2013 - the East Anglian Air Ambulance – at a recent presentation.

The money was raised throughout the year via a programme of activities organised by Hamilton Acorn’s Kate Everitt and included Munchy Mondays, where home cooked goodies were sold by staff members each week, Easter and Christmas raffles, a Grand National sweepstake and donating in place of sending Christmas cards.

Sophie Emmanuel, representing the East Anglian Air Ambulance, said: ”Contributions like this make a huge difference to our work here in East Anglia and we are delighted to accept this donation. A big thank you goes to everyone at Hamilton Acorn for their efforts.”

Steve Edwards, managing director at Hamilton Acorn, said: ”We are proud to be associated with the East Anglian Air Ambulance and are pleased that we have been able to help support them in providing an essential service, they do a great job.”

Hamilton Acorn is supporting Star Throwers, a cancer support charity based in Wymondham, Norfolk in 2014.
