Simon DentonDevon Air Ambulance Trust (DAAT) has announced the appointment of a new member of the Board of Trustees.

Anita Newcombe worked as Managing Editor of Devon Life magazine and four sister titles in the South West for over eight years.  She now runs her own PR, marketing and training organisation, Anita Newcombe Media. Anita will serve as a Trustee of DAAT for a period of three years with a maximum term of six years.

Anita said, “I have had links through Devon Life with Devon Air Ambulance for many years, running articles and news stories in the magazine and attending events.  Now that I am managing my own business, I have the flexibility to do more and hope to offer plenty of support in my particular areas of expertise.   

“Devon is an extraordinary county, large and with a lengthy and sometimes inaccessible coastline.  I’m sure that we’re all glad to know that Devon Air Ambulance is there for us should we have an accident and need urgent assistance.  

“Not everyone realises Devon Air Ambulance Trust provides us with two helicopters without any sort of government funding. We should all support Devon’s iconic red helicopters and their amazing crews as much as we can. ”
