Donation to Wiltshire Air Ambulance

downloadThe Devizes Lions and Rotary Clubs’ annual joint charity golf day in May raised funds to help the lifesaving work of the Wiltshire Air Ambulance.  Recently, Lions’ President Don Jones and Rotary’s past President Tom MacMeekin presented a total of more than £3,000 to Air Ambulance paramedics Keith Mills and Richard Miller.

Rebecca de la Bedoyere, Fundraising Manager at Wiltshire Air Ambulance, said: “We are so grateful to the Clubs for their continued support of Wiltshire Air Ambulance.  It costs £2.5 million a year to keep the air ambulance operational and money raised by the community is vital.  Each mission costs around £2,500, so the money raised by the Clubs is truly a lifesaving amount.”

Background

Each year the Devizes Lions and Rotary Clubs arrange a joint charity golf day with each Club choosing its own good cause to benefit from the day.  This year both Clubs decided that the Wiltshire Air Ambulance should receive all the money raised from the event held at the North Wilts Golf Club. In fine weather, which contrasted with the deluges on the days before and after the event, sixteen teams of four from around this area competed for a range of prizes.
