Thank You Ian Hartshorne

On Friday 10TH June 2016, Ian Hartshorne donated £4,942.20 and gift aid of £271.75 to the Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance (DLRAA).

Ian, from Pentrich, raised the money by taking part in the London Marathon and organising an event in his local village hall.

It was the first time that Ian had run a marathon and he completed it in a fantastic time of  4 hours and 2 minutes.

He presented a cheque to DLRAA fundraising co-ordinator for Derbyshire, Collette Richardson and Richard Fletcher, volunteer Derbyshire community representative at East Midlands Airport.

Richard said: “We were delighted to be presented with the cheque from Ian and are all very proud of his amazing achievement; DLRAA relies entirely on donations from members of the public as it receives no government funding. This goes a long way to help keep our lifesaving service flying and saving lives.”
