We were proud to donate £1000 to each of the Midlands and Wales Air Ambulances

On April 22nd the Rotary Club of Knighton and District were delighted to have the opportunity to present £1000 to each of the Midland and Wales Air Ambulances. 

As Rotary Club President Margaret Thorp said “We have been so pleased with the support our communities have given us during our fundraising efforts for these charities over the past twelve months. It is thanks to everyone’s generosity that we have been able to donate this much to the Air Ambulances that provide services to our region.” 

As Wales Air Ambulance representative Andrew Catling said “Both charities are greatly appreciative of the ongoing support given to us by the Knighton Rotary Club”. Nicole Beebee of the Midlands Air Ambulance added “This very generous donation will help both Air Ambulances to continue their essential work in the local communities. As you are aware both charities rely on the support of the communities they serve so this donation is greatly appreciated.”
