When the Kershaw Group last stopped by the Magpas Operations base they had the Magpas Helimedix team bowing in honour of their fundraising triumphs.
For five years in a row now the Cambridgeshire-based construction company have chosen to support Magpas as their charity of the year. The Helimedix knelt down as Kershaw grandly presented their latest donation of £3,116, bringing the group’s fundraising total so far to a fantastic £16,687!
It’s thanks to their annual celebratory lunch, raffle and auction that the loyal Magpas supporters have managed to raise the lifesaving funds.
Peggy Burch, team secretary, says “The company has chosen to support Magpas for a fifth year because of the vital lifesaving work that the charity does; it’s incredible. What stands out about Magpas is the commitment and dedication of the volunteer doctors and paramedics who give up their own time to work for this charity. The public needs to support Magpas Helimedix as they never know when they might need these lifesaving experts.”
Antonia Brickell, Head of Communications at Magpas, says, “Magpas’s service continues to evolve to provide the highest standard of specialist care for patients in life threatening situations. We couldn’t do what we do without the help from dedicated supporters like Kershaw; we are hugely grateful.”
