Pavey Group helps to secure £2,500 for Devon Air Ambulance
The Closer to You programme gives Ecclesiastical’s Select insurance broker partners the chance to be part of its ambition to give £100million to good causes. As well as providing funding for charities close to brokers, employees from the specialist insurer are also teaming up with brokers for volunteering days and fundraising challenges.
Thank you to the team at Ecclesiastical for supporting our Charity of the Year.
ABOUT OUR CHOSEN CHARITY
Devon Air Ambulance provide emergency medical services through the provision of two helicopter air ambulances covering the county of Devon. Last year their two Air Ambulances assisted 990 patients and throughout their 25 year history have helped in excess of 25,000 patients. In 2017 it cost £6.4 million to run the service and in addition, they need to raise around £1m more to build capital funds in order to replace their two aircraft after ten years’ service. Devon Air Ambulance are proud to be independent of Government and National Lottery funding, making donations from their corporate sponsors an integral part of their fundraising mix.
