Thank You Colin Baxter

Colin Baxter

Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance is saying a big thank you to Colin Baxter after he raised money for their lifesaving service instead of getting gifts for his birthday.

Colin, a retired firefighter from Shepshed, turned 70 on 21st October 2015. To celebrate he held a small party for close family and friends, but decided that instead of having lots of bottles of wine and presents, he would prefer it if everybody made a donation to The Air Ambulance Service.

His daughter Tracey and granddaughter Helena collected money on the night. Altogether Colin’s birthday raised a staggering £220 for his local air ambulance.

Colin would like to thank everybody for the kindness and generosity they’ve shown.
