Sky high support for Wiltshire Air Ambulance from local businesses

Hitachi Information Control Systems (based in Bradford on Avon) this week handed over a cheque for £1000 to the team from Wiltshire Air Ambulance.

This record-breaking amount was achieved by the company’s annual Christmas raffle raising £835 and the company MD Tim Gray making up the balance to an amazing £1000.

Sales & Marketing Head, Denise Watkins said, “we were thrilled to raise this amount for Wiltshire Air Ambulance and a big thank you to our MD for making the total a 4-figure sum. This was a record amount for us, and we only achieved this with the support of local businesses and the community”

Raffle prizes included some great prizes donated ranging from a Dinner Voucher from Ravello’s to a Family Photo-Shoot for Lucy McGrath Photography.

Sally Boats Director, Steve Langley donated a Day Barge for 10 people and commented “Times have been tough for both businesses and charities alike, but we always like to try and support the team at HICSE (Hitachi Information Control Systems Europe) as they work so hard to support many local charities and it’s always a privilege - and fun - to be involved!”
