Thank You Swarkestone Nursery

The nursery has been supporting the air ambulance for 3 years now allowing volunteers to hold bucket collections and Air Ambulance Week collections, as well as having collection tins by their tills throughout the year.

This year the nursery raised an amazing £1,826.82 – enough to cover the cost of a lifesaving mission.

Collette Richardson, fundraising coordinator for Derbyshire, said: “It’s great to have been supported by Swarkestone for the third year in a row. This year the nursery smashed their previous fundraising total by over £300. We’re delighted with the amount raised. As we receive no government funding, fundraising like this helps us keep our lifesaving services flying.”

Laura Jackson of Swarkestone Nursery said “We are very proud to support the air ambulance, and thank our customers for donating their spare change to help us raise money for a very worthy cause. I am amazed by how much we have managed to raise, but it just goes to show how many people appreciate what the air ambulance and it’s volunteers do for our country.”
