THOUSANDS of pounds have been handed over to the Great Western Air Ambulance charity by a North Somerset garden centre.
Cadbury Garden and Leisure Centre in Smallway, Congresbury, gave the lifesaving organisation a total of £2,391 to help with its work, as it receives no Government funding and relies solely on money from the public.
John Christensen, chief executive of the air ambulance charity, said: “It’s been a fantastic year working with Cadbury Garden Centre and we are extremely pleased to receive the fantastic total.
“This will help to keep our helicopter flying in this area, performing vital lifesaving work.”
Stefania Rulli-Gibbs, from the garden centre, said: “We are extremely proud to have been able to help such a worthy local charity.
“Our staff enthusiastically baked, jumped, cycled and fundraised in the most creative ways in order to support Great Western Air Ambulance, literally a lifesaver for local people.”
