Thank You Errwood Fly Fishing Club

Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance are saying a big thank you to Errwood Fly Fishing Club who raised a fabulous £1000.00.

Club Chairman, David Hamnett, said ‘Club members often fish in the beautiful Goyt Valley and are aware, if anything untoward were to happen, it would be The Air Ambulance and The Mountain Rescue Teams who would be called upon to help’. Members of the club decided to raise funds through collections, raffles and fishing competitions, hoping to raise £1000.00 in total but, through the generosity of members and an auction of fishing tackle, that target was exceeded.

David further commented ‘I cannot thank Gordon Booth, Don Hough and our members enough for their hard work and the fantastic efforts made to enable £1,000 to be given to both The Air Ambulance and Mountain Rescue to allow them to continue their vital work’.

Volunteer Peter Corbett accepted the donation on behalf of DLRAA.

Thank you again from everyone at the Air Ambulance – without you, we wouldn’t be able to continue our lifesaving work.
