1. Exmoor Flag Supports DSAA

    July 24, 2017 by Lara Lucas

    Edward and Julie Christian presented £100 on behalf of the Exmoor Flag to Samantha Smith, Fundraising Support Administrator at Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance.

    The Exmoor Flag was selected from five shortlisted designs following an open to all competition, and is an official United Kingdom flag registered by The Flag Institute. The flag has no copyright so it is free to fly and use by anyone across the globe to celebrate the county of Exmoor.

    Following the flag’s launch three years ago with the support of the Exmoor National Park Authority, Edward and Julie now promote the Flag and run its retail operation. After its launch, Julie and Edward pledged that for each product sold, a small contribution would be made to both air ambulance services who cover the Exmoor region.

    Donations are made possible from a contribution of sales via the Exmoor Flag official online shop and wholesale orders from stockists around the region. Last year Devon Air Ambulance received a donation and now this is the first pledge to Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance.

    Edward commented: “We are delighted once again to be able to give a small contribution from the sale of Exmoor Flag merchandise, this time to the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance. Exmoor is a beautiful stunning area but its nature of being a remote rural location makes it harder to access in an emergency, so the services of the air ambulance are invaluable to its residents and visitors alike.”

    Julie added: “We are constantly looking at adding new lines to our existing range and have had some interesting ideas from our stockist and customers, including our latest product - Exmoor Flag bunting.  Most importantly, the more we sell the more we can give back and support the air ambulance.”
