NatWest branches right across the South East Region have chosen Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance as their 2018 chosen charity. A total of 99 branches will be taking part in fundraising throughout the year.
Ten of NatWest's Area Managers recently held their monthly regional board meeting at the charity's base in Marden. They were given a tour of the helicopter and this unique experience gave them an insight into just how vital the service is, as the crew were called out to three people in need during their stay.
Kevin Guy, Regional Director at NatWest, said: "We're delighted and very proud to be partnering and supporting this charity during 2018. It's an amazing charity and all of our branch teams are really keen to show their support and make a difference to further help the communities we also serve."
Two members of staff at the Horsham branch will be running the Brighton Marathon next month while a team of 10 from the Orpington branch will be taking on the Three Peaks Challenge in June.
Julie Clare, Head of Corporate Relations at Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance, said: "As an independent charity, we rely on fundraising and donations so every penny is truly valued. Our doctor and paramedic teams can deliver all the skills and equipment of an A&E department to critically ill and injured patients – wherever and whenever it is needed. None of us ever know when we might need to depend on this vital service which is why we are delighted to have been elected as NatWest's chosen charity."
