Gibbs Denley chooses Magpas to be their charity of the year for a second consecutive year!

Last year Insurance and Financial Services group Gibbs Denley chose Magpas Air Ambulance to be their charity of the year and raised a fantastic £1776.34.

We are delighted that Gibbs Denley have now decided to make us their charity of the year for a second year running, and have planned lots of exciting ways to fundraise and spread awareness of Magpas in the community.

We would like to thank all at Gibbs Denley for their continued support and look forward to joining them in their fundraising endeavours throughout 2016 – it really does make a lifesaving difference.
