Harrogate firm raise staggering amount for vital Children’s Air Ambulance
Harrogate-based events and silent auction company, Impulse Decisions, have raised over £57,000 for the vital Children’s Air Ambulance (TCAA) charity.
The Children’s Air Ambulance is a national service, changing the face of paediatric and neonatal care through the transfer of critically ill babies and children, flying them from one hospital to another for specialist care – and at an average cost of £3,500 a mission- they’re able to fly approximately four times faster than travelling via land ambulance, helping to save many young lives.
Working closely with the Children’s Air Ambulance over the last few months, the dedicated team at Impulse Decisions have raised the sum of money through their impressive silent auctions.
“This has been a great partnership and shows the benefits of our silent auctions, and just how much money they can raise, at no cost to the charity. After the last two years, it is even more important to continue to support charities like this and in total, we helped charities nationwide raise over £1million last year,” commented Impulse Decision’s Director of Hospitality Sales, Tom Hesketh.
The partnership between Impulse Decisions and the Children’s Air Ambulance flourished ever since they previously worked together at a couple of events – and the results of the partnership, in just three months, have been phenomenal for the lifesaving charity.
“On behalf of the Children’s Air Ambulance, we’d like to say a huge thank you to the team at Impulse Decisions for their support over the last few months. Our vital charity receives no government funding, so we are incredibly grateful for the support, from individuals and businesses alike, as we depend wholly on these wonderful partnerships and donations to keep our vital service flying,” stated TCAA Community Fundraising Executive, Sharon Evans.
“We cannot thank Tom Hesketh and his team enough for their incredible fundraising donation of £57,493.87! This great amount will go towards further developing the Children’s Air Ambulance, including implementing new bespoke equipment onboard the aircraft to further support the Clinical Partner Teams we work alongside and the critically ill babies and children we transfer,” she added.
