Visitors to this weekend’s Ardingly Spring Show will get the chance to meet the Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance crew and win a brand new car in a raffle to celebrate the charity’s Silver Jubilee.
The helicopter will be based at The Showground on Sunday (May 3rd) and Monday (May 4th) so members of the public can meet the pilot, doctor and paramedic - subject to emergency callouts.
There will also be a raffle to win a red 1.2 Mini One three-door hatchback which has been kindly donated by Barretts of Canterbury.
The car boasts tyre pressure monitoring, a Thatcham 1 alarm system, ISOFIX child seat system, front foglights, on-board computer and Bluetooth hands-free function with USB digital radio.
The air ambulance has helped thousands of people and saved many lives after attending more than 25,000 call-outs over the last quarter of a century.
Head of Promotions Katie Eeles said: “The service we provide today would simply not be possible without the kind support of the public.
“The need for our life-saving service will never go away, and your support will help to ensure that we can continue helping patients who need us for many years to come.”
Tickets for the Win a Mini raffle cost £5 each and can also be purchased online at www.raffle.me.uk. The draw will take place on December 15th, 2015, making it a perfect Christmas present for one lucky winner.
The charity is very grateful to Barretts of Canterbury, a Kent-based family-run business famous for its motor dealerships based in Canterbury and Ashford. It currently boasts six car franchises including Broad Oak Mini from where the prize car has kindly been donated.
