Thank You Swarkestone Nursery

Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance is once again saying a big thank you to Swarkestone Nursery.

The nursery suported the air ambulance for the second time during 2015, allowing volunteers to hold bucket collections and Air Ambulance Week collections, as well as having collection tins by their tills throughout the year.

They managed to raise £1,581.04 for their local air ambulance service in total – almost enough for a mission.

Collette Richardson, fundraising coordinator for Derbyshire, said: “It’s great to have been supported by Swarkestone for the second year in a row. We’re delighted with the amount raised. As we receive no government funding, fundraising like this helps us keep our lifesaving services flying.”
