AFGolfStore are delighted to announce East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) as our Charity of the Year.
EAAA is a life-saving service that delivers highly-skilled doctors and critical care paramedics by air or car to seriously ill or injured people in East Anglia, providing treatments normally only seen in hospitals. These treatments, such as providing blood transfusions at scene, can mean the difference between life and death and ensure the patient has the best chance of getting to hospital.
Operating from their bases in Cambridge and Norwich, their two helicopters are there for the people that need them in East Anglia. At times when it is impractical to fly, they will attend in rapid response vehicles (RRV) which carry the same equipment as the helicopters.
They are the first air ambulance service in the East of England to provide a 24/7 service by both air and road and like many charities, rely on the generosity of those in their community to keep being there for those in need.
We will be donating 20p for the sale of every golf lesson sold at our Cambridge and Peterborough stores, expected to raise at least £500 over the next year. These stores will also be hosting collection boxes at the tills so visitors can make cash donations.
Chris Hattersley, a spokesperson for AFGolfStore said: “We are very proud to support The East Anglia Air Ambulance and help raise money through serving the golfers of East Anglia in our Peterborough and Cambridge stores. As we help golfers improve, they as well as our coaches can feel comforted in knowing that by improving, they are also helping to support the charity that means so much to the East Anglian community.”
Tammy Swiderski, Community Fundraiser for East Anglian Air Ambulance, said: “We’re so grateful that AF Golf Store has selected us to be their Charity of the Year. East Anglian Air Ambulance relies almost entirely on public donations and support, and the organisation is facing a very challenging year ahead with the cost-of-living crisis. This new partnership will support our crews in delivering 24/7 life-saving care by air and road in the region.”
East Anglian Air Ambulance is a registered charity (number 1083876). Find out more about their work: www.eaaa.org.uk
