Get on board Businesses on Board Thomas Westcott adds to DAA fundraising total Thomas Westcott Agricultural Consultancy Service has raised £691.16 for Devon Air Ambulance in 2019, thanks to kind donations from our clients and professional contacts, bringing the total raised for Devon Air Ambulance over the last 15 years to £5,640.75. As part of its support for rural communities, Thomas Westcott teams attend a number of agricultural shows across the South West, serving complimentary refreshments visitors to the stand, as well as face painting for children where they display collection buckets encouraging people to donate to Devon Air Ambulance. Peter Brown, Director of Thomas Westcott’s Agricultural Consultancy Service, said: Devon Air Ambulance is a really important charity, particularly for people working in dangerous environments in agricultural and rural communities, including our farming clients. Accessing accident and emergency facilities via the road network is becoming increasing difficult. The agricultural industry has one of the highest accident levels of any occupation and it is important that we can get people to the best level of care in as quickly as possible, if the worst does happen. We know how much our clients appreciate the work carried out by the charity, so as a firm we are delighted to support Devon Air Ambulance. First choice for Charity of the Year Devon Air Ambulance has been the Agricultural Consultancy Service’s charity of choice for many years. Over the last 15 years, the company has raised more than £5,600 on behalf of the charity. Tracy Owen, Devon Air Ambulance Fundraising Manager said: We are extremely grateful to Thomas Westcott for their continued support and the significant funds they have raised over the years. As Peter says, our service is much needed in the agricultural community as demonstrated in 2018 when we attended 29 agricultural related trauma incidents. Thomas Westcott’s support helps us to continue to develop our service so that we can provide the best care possible to our patients. We look forward to continuing to support Thomas Westcott’s with their fundraising. Would you like to get your business on board supporting Devon Air Ambulance? If so we'd love to hear from you.
