Thank you Heage Garden Fete

On Monday 14th September 2015, Tina Fielding and her Family donated £1,294.01 for the Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance (DLRAA).

Tina Fielding presented Richard, Grace and Julie Fletcher, Derbyshire representatives for DLRAA, with the money at her home in the main garden area. The money was raisedby Tina opening her garden for a fete on Saturday 12th September, The event had refreshment, cake and tombola stalls and a special raffle with prizes donated by local businesses (a special thank you to Graham Holtam for providing the first prize – a balloon ride for two). Amazing music was also provided by Patrick Cooke, a local organ grinder.

Richard said: “I was delighted to be presented with the money from Tina. She has done an amazing job. On the day 16 volunteers helped her and we were also there providing support and help on the day too. DLRAA relies entirely on donations from members of the public as it receives no government funding. Therefore support from people such as Tina and her team of volunteers really are invaluable and goes a long way to helping to keep our lifesaving service flying and saving lives.”
