Thank You Vin and Mary Burgin

On Monday 12 December 2016, Vin and Mary Burgin donated £160.00 to Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance (DLRAA).

Vin & Mary Burgin presented Richard Fletcher, Derbyshire community representative for DLRAA, with the cheque at their home in Codnor. The donation was from a collection held on Thursday 10th November 2016 to celebrate Vin and Mary’s Diamond Wedding. The family had also arranged for her majesty The Queen to send a Diamond Wedding Anniversary message of congratulations.

Richard said: “I was delighted to be presented with the cheque from Vin and Mary, DLRAA relies entirely on donations from members of the public as it receives no government funding. This magnificent gesture from such a wonderful couple as they celebrate 60 years or marriage is both touching and graciously accepted by the air ambulance Service who thank them for their support and wish them many more happy years together.
