He said: "I want to thank everyone for their support and continued help to keep the gathering running during the day."
The charity has been established for 19 years and costs around £4million a year to run.
An air ambulance charity spokesman said: 'Thank you to The Lighthouse Inn for this cheque.
"Each rescue flight made by the air ambulance costs around £3,000 and we fly for approximately 19 hours a day in double shifts across the county, so these donated funds are essential."
