Colne staff and shoppers help raise £37,000

Lancashire Telegraph: BIG BOOST  Boundary Mill BIG BOOST Boundary Mill

CUSTOMERS have helped a Colne retail giant to collect more than £37,000 to help to keep the North West Air Ambulance in the air.

Boundary Mill, whose owner is Richard Bannister, adopted the air ambulance service as its chosen charity for 2011 and has staged a series of fundraisers over the past 12 months.

Staff and shoppers have supported everything from a relay race, to quizzes, raffles and a fun day, alongside the traditional collecting tins.

Mark Carroll, the air ambulance’s development head, said: “We are delighted that one of the biggest retailers in our region chose the North West Air Ambulance as their charity of the year.

“Last year, we flew more than 1,200 rescue missions throughout the region so donations like these make a real contribution to keeping our charity going.”

Please don't donate to this .
Your taxes should be paying for the NHS to provide ambulance services. And if you say this is an extra service you could say that road ambulances are an extra service on top of horse pulled carts which we used to have.
The more money people give to charities the less the government will give.
