Thank You DHL Aviation

DHL Aviation, based at East Midlands Airport, has donated £5,800 for lifesaving local charity Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance (DLRAA).

The company raised the money by organising a series of events during 2015 after choosing DLRAA as their charity of the year. They are located near the air ambulance base at the airport and have supported the charity since it was formed in 2008.

Sophie Burt, DLRAA’s senior fundraising manager says: “The charity’s existence relies entirely on public donations so we are thrilled with how much was raised. I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who donated – their generous ongoing support plays a crucial part in allowing us to provide vital services for the general public.”

Each mission DLRAA run costs around £1,700, and they receive no government funding. The charity rely entirely on fundraising events like this to keep their lifesaving services flying.
