Employee at Dorchester Business raises £1,643 for Air Ambulance

September 29, 2017 by Lara Lucas

A cheque for £1,643.63 was presented to Leanne Colverson, Fundraising Co-ordinator for Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance by Blueberry Mortgages Paul Butterworth, Sales Director & Chris Moyse, Compliance Director

Margaret Crabb, Administrator at Blueberry Mortgages in Poundbury was touched personally by the life-saving service that the Air Ambulance provides. Her son suffered life-threatening head injuries as a result of a serious farming accident which triggered the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance flying in and taking him to Southmead Hospital, Bristol.

Margaret said when questioned about why she was so generous with her time: “My son made an excellent recovery, all thanks to the speedy reactions of the Air Ambulance. It could have been a very solemn story without them.

“They are such a vital service, I did what I could to help them in return for what they did for my son, and so many people we know locally.”

Margaret has spent the last 12 months fundraising in the company with raffles, donations and giving her catering services for free to the many trainees who come for 5-day Mortgage Advisor training courses at the Widombe street HQ. She has spent hours making glorious buffets for the attendees and all the money raised has now gone towards the phenomenal work that Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance continue to do.
