Air ambulance charities flying high

22 June 2012

Persimmon Homes South West has pledged to raise as much money as possible for the local Air Ambulance services in the South West after nominating them as their chosen charities for 2012.

The Exeter based housebuilder aims to raise vital funds for the Devon Air Ambulance Trust (DAAT), the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance, and the Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust, so that they can keep their helicopters flying.

The Air Ambulances undertake life-saving missions by attending accidents, road traffic incidents, equestrian and sports-related injuries and medical emergencies including cardiac arrests and strokes. The charities rely solely on community funding to keep their services operational which is just one of the reasons Persimmon Homes were so keen to get involved.

Simon Perks, managing director for Persimmon Homes South West, said: “We’re delighted to announce the Air Ambulance Services in the South West as our chosen charities for 2012. It’s very important for us to support the local community and the Air Ambulance services are fantastic charities working tirelessly to provide an emergency service to our region.

“Throughout the year, we hope to raise as much as we can to support them through a series of fundraising initiatives and events.”

Caroline Creer, fundraising director of DAAT, said: “We are extremely grateful to have the support of Persimmon Homes. We rely entirely on funds being raised by businesses and local people so it’s great news not only for us but for the region as a whole.”
