Cemex Clay Pigeon Club raise £2,800 for Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance
Over the last ten years, Cemex Clay Pigeon Club have supported their local air ambulance service with a number of fundraising events. This year they held a shoot which raised a very impressive £2,750. In addition to this, they then donated an additional £50, taking the total to £2,800.
This is the last year Cemex Clay Pigeon Club are able to donate to our charity as they have lost their shooting ground and have been unable to find a new location. They have been together for 30 years, so it has marked a sad occasion for them. However, they’re delighted to go out on a high by donating such an incredible amount of money to our charity.
Three members of the club; Mick Randell, Roger Facer and Julian Ward, were invited to our Coventry airbase to present a cheque to the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance (WNAA).
They met our dedicated crew, learnt about what happens when they’re called out on a mission and even met the airdesk team who arrange the Children’s Air Ambulance missions. They thoroughly enjoyed the visit and found it eye opening just how fast we can deploy on every mission!
Julian said “We chose to support the air ambulance service for a number of reasons, the main one being that it is a local charity and such a great cause.”
“The air ambulance service is a very worthwhile charity, although we have never needed it, you never know who might and it’s reassuring to know the service is there.” Mick added.
Lee Bunting, WNAA Fundraising Executive, said “It’s great to see a group of people supporting us so passionately over the years. It’s a shame that their group is having to come to an end after being together for so long, but to think of us year on year, and to raise such an outstanding amount of money in their final year, is a really excellent way to bring the group to an end.
“All of us at the air ambulance service appreciate everything they have done for our charity.”
