Thank You Raks Trust

Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance are saying thank you to the family of flight lieutenant Rakesh Chauhan, after they presented £8,300 to the charity at their base at East Midlands Airport.

Rakesh’s family set up a trust in memory of the 29-year-old intelligence officer who died with four colleagues in Kandahar province, near the Pakiston border, in April 2014.

The money was raised by family members, including his father, Kishor, and brother, Kesh, of Cropston, when they took part in the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge in September. They were jonied by 61 walkers aged between 15-67 years old, and all completed at least one of the peaks.

To everyone who raised money for our charity – thank you.
