Hardwick Stores looking to beat previous years’ efforts in charity Christmas raffle

Hardwick Stores looking to beat previous years’ efforts in charity Christmas raffle

A family-run business in Hardwick is hoping to smash its previous fundraising goals for local lifesaving charity Magpas Air Ambulance by holding a Christmas raffle.

Tejinder and Emma Bhachu, the owners of Nisa Hardwick Stores, have supported the charity for more than a decade. For the past two years, the family have successfully held a Christmas raffle with the help of local businesses and customers, raising over £1,000.

This year, the couple hope to raise even more by offering a wide selection of prizes ranging from pet, beauty and Christmas hampers to beer vouchers.

Emma Bhachu said, “Our customers have shown their consistent generosity over the past couple of years, and we want to continue to support this fantastic charity. Next time you’re in the area, please drop in and get involved in our raffle!”

The money raised will support Magpas Air Ambulance which brings advanced care in the East of England and beyond to people in life-threatening situations. The service is funded by public donations and receives no direct Government funding.

Tickets are available now for only £1 from the shop at 99 Cambridge Road, Hardwick. Winning tickets will be drawn at midday on Wednesday 21st December, where free mince pies and hot mulled wine will also be available!

St Neots fire crew visit Magpas Air Ambulance base to hand over donation

St Neots fire crew visit Magpas Air Ambulance base to hand over donation

A team of firefighters from St Neots Fire Station have donated £500 to Magpas Air Ambulance at a visit to the charity’s operations base.

The station welcomed the public at an open day on 24th September while raising funds for good causes. Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service regularly work with the specialist medics from Magpas Air Ambulance at the scene of emergency incidents - often road traffic collisions.

Pat Ferguson, an on-call firefighter at the St Neots Fire Station, said: “It's only when you see the lifesaving work the Magpas team do under extremely difficult circumstances that you really start to appreciate and understand the skills needed to be part of that team. Having witnessed first-hand the lifesaving work the medics can do by the side of the road it’s an honour for me and the team at St Neots to work alongside them.”

In a visit to the Magpas Air Ambulance base on 19th October, the crew handed over a cheque for £500 to Critical Care Paramedic, Chris Hawkins. Chris and volunteers Jan Parker and Jenny Smith also gave them an up-close look at the air ambulance and talk about the service.

Chris said: “We work closely with Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service and the other emergency services when helping people involved in serious incidents. They’ve already experienced directly how their donation makes a real difference to people in life-threatening emergencies. We really appreciate that they’ve chosen to support our work as we’re not a state-funded service.”
