£1000 from Enterprise and Ashfield

Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance (DLRAA) have received a generous £1,000 donation from Enterprise (Rent-a-Car) on behalf of Ashfield Healthcare. The cheque was presented to DLRAA’s national partnerships manager, Sophie Burt, on 16th January 2015.

Ashfield Healthcare fundraise for their internal ‘Worthy Causes Fund’, and hold a charity golf tournament each year to raise money for local healthcare and education establishments.

This year, Enterprise supported Ashfield Healthcare’s event by making a donation directly to DLRAA. Sophie accepted the cheque from Leanne Breakspear from Enterprise and Lisa Wiggins from Ashfield Healthcare at the latter’s offices in Ashby de la Zouch.

National partnerships manager for DLRAA Sophie Burt commented “I am very pleased to accept this fantastic donation of £1000 from Enterprise and would like to pass on our thanks to both Enterprise for the donation and to Ashfield Healthcare for acting as our ‘middle man’! DLRAA receive no government funding, and with every mission costing about £1,700, support from local businesses like these is absolutely essential.

Thank you to everyone at Enterprise and Ashfield Healthcare for their generosity.
