On 27th March at the Episode Hotel in Leamington Spa there was a glamorous Spring Fashion show and raffle in aid of the Warwickshire Air Ambulance charity. Thanks to the generous donations of raffle prizes from local busineses the evening raised £1,560 for the charity. Tustains Jewellers, LK Bennett, the Episode Hotel and Esque Beauty products were amongst sponsors who donated prizes. Almost 100 guests attended the exclusive fashion show and afterwards they stayed on to enjoy dancing the night away!
In the10 years the local Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance has existed the service has saved thousands of lives. The Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) regularly transports victims of trauma to the most appropriate hospital for their injuries. Tom Milner, director at Tustains, commented: “The Air Ambulance provides such a valuable local service that, when they approached us for help, we were delighted to support their fundraising by selling tickets and providing a Swarovski silver and pearl bracelet towards the raffle”.
Liz Weston, Business Development Manager for Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance (WNAA) said: “The wonderful raffle prizes offered by local businesses meant everyone who came bought lots of tickets on the night. This event raised almost enough to fund a complete mission, which costs around £1,700. As a Charity, we are very grateful to everyone who was involved in contributing to the success of the Fashion Show and we hope that we can count on their support again in the future.”
