Throughout 2021, the Grant UK team were busy raising money for local charity, the Wiltshire Air Ambulance. Following a series of virtual and physical fundraising events, the company donated a further £15,000 to the charity to support their life-saving work.
Last year, the Grant UK team organised Marching March, a step count challenge that encouraged the team to walk as many steps as they could. In June, despite the limitations caused by the pandemic, the team organised a virtual race night. Later in the year, collections were made from bake sales, sweepstakes and Grant UK’s annual staff Christmas raffle which raised a record amount of money.
Anna Wakefield, head of marketing at Grant UK, said: “We are so pleased to be presenting the Wiltshire Air Ambulance with this donation of £15,000,”
“Once again, the pandemic has been another challenging year for charities like the WAA so we hope our latest Company donation will help support their ongoing work which is so essential in the community. The Grant team have done a wonderful job fundraising for this worthy cause and we are looking forward to supporting the WAA throughout 2022.”
Des Regan, Wiltshire Air Ambulance’s senior fundraising manager, said: “We need to raise £4 million each year to continue flying and saving lives,”
“We receive no regular direct Government funding or National Lottery grants, so rely on generous donations from the public and local businesses, such as Grant UK. With this latest donation, Grant UK has effectively paid for more than a day’s worth of a missions so we can’t thank them enough for continuing their fantastic support of our charity.”
