Sainsbury’s spruce up DLRAA’s kitchen

Sainsbury’s Chaddesden visited the Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance airbase with a rather unusual donation on 3rd June 2015.

As a thank you for all the Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance crew do for their local community, the ladies from Sainsbury’s kitted out the air base with new kitchen equipment, including new toaster, kettle, George Foreman grill and hamper.

Collette Richardson, fundraising coordinator in Derbyshire, said “These kind of donations really do go a long way in our charity. It means we can focus on fundraising for our lifesaving missions. Our crew can cook up a hot breakfast again!

“I’d like to say a big thank you to Sainsbury’s Chaddesden, their kind donation is really appreciated by everyone at the East Midlands Airbase – although I don’t think the cakes will last very long!”
