Having a Ball for Devon Air Ambulance Trust

Back in February, Karen Threadgold threw a charity ball raising over £1100 for Devon Air Ambulance Trust. The event celebrated 20 years of Karen running Rosemary Conley classes in Torquay, Paignton, and Newton Abbot but unfortunately coincided with Rosemary Conley Food & Fitness Ltd going into administration.  Undeterred, Karen has since set up her own Threadgold Fitness classes so she can continue to help members, old and new, achieve their fitness and/or weight-loss goals.

The ball was attended by over 100 members and partners, making it a great success. Karen says, “It was a fabulous event. Everyone looked stunning and I...

The Charity which funds the two Air Ambulance service is committed to continually improving and developing its service and has set a target to extend flying hours to 10pm all year around from 2016, with a further extension...
