Flying high: Coventry office donates to local air ambulance

August 25, 2020

Employees from RSK’s Coventry, UK, office have donated an incredible 70 bags of pre-loved and unwanted items to a local air ambulance charity that operates a national children’s air ambulance and a local air ambulance service for Warwickshire, Northamptonshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland.

The collection was organised by RSK Asbestos laboratory analysts Jenny Staley and Tina Geddes after a leaflet about donations to the air ambulance was delivered to Tina’s home in Coventry.

“We think it is unbelievable that the air ambulance still has to rely on charity and donations for support as the work they do is so important and saves so many lives,” says Jenny. “Because of this, we wanted to help in any way we could to keep the helicopters flying and keep everyone safe.”

The organisation flies two local air ambulance services serving a total of five counties. They provide a rapid response to trauma and medical emergencies over an area of 3850 square miles that covers many of the UK’s major road networks, including the M1, M6, M69 and M42.

Whether it is quality clothing, furniture or toys, the charity resells donated items to raise vital funds for the air ambulance service. With many people having a much-needed clear-out during lockdown, Jenny and Tina had a great response to their call for help! As lots of employees are still working from home, many made a special journey to the office to drop off their donations.

The air ambulance said a huge thank you for the donations.
