Congratulations to the Millbrook Garden Company who have raised over £11,000 in their first year supporting Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance. The company, who each year choose to support a local charity, have held charity festive evenings, donated money from their bag charges, completed a 60-mile walk, raising a total of £6,539 – a huge £1,500 more than they hoped for – and supported the Air Ambulance with their BMW raffle.

Last week, Millbrook pledged to support the charity for a second year, kicking off with their ever-popular Charity Festive Evening. The event, which is held simultaneously across all three of their garden centres, raised an impressive £2,525. This year, they took on a family focus with games set up for customers to win discounts on their shopping for a donation of 50p to the charity. Pictured above is the company’s Managing Director taking part in the human fruit machine game which proved to be nothing short of hilarious.

Other games included reindeer hoopla, hook a bauble and festive pitch and putt. Millbrook’s Brand Manager, Liz Dowling, said, ‘We have held a Charity Festive Evening for as long as we can remember, but this year it took on a new dimension as we sought to attract more families with games and singing from local groups and choirs. The atmosphere was fantastic and customers, staff and Air Ambulance volunteers all had a great evening. We have really enjoyed supporting the charity, being just around the corner from our Staplehurst Centre, and offering such a vital service has really focused our minds on raising as much as possible. We’re currently planning our 2018 challenge, watch this space!’

The Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance Trust provides a Helicopter Emergency Medical Services (HEMS), responding to patients who have suffered trauma or serious medical emergencies. They operate 24 hours a day, ensuring they can be there for the most critically ill and injured people in the region. They operate two aircraft – one from their Marden base in daylight hours, and the other from their Redhill base 24 hours a day. This means that no matter where you are in Kent, Surrey or Sussex, you are never more than 20 minutes away from the life-saving care that only they can bring directly to your side.
