A fundraising drive by Welford Skittles League is helping to keep the air ambulance where it should be – in the air.

They held their League final and invited back volunteers Heather Burton and Richard Durham to talk to the group about the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance service.

A cheque for £1,747 was presented to the charity after money was raised at a raffle from the summer skittles league, The Elizabethan and Long Buckby A Side and Bob who donated their winning prizes.

Heather said: “We were delighted to receive such a generous donation as we rely entirely on donations from the public.”
