Devon Air Ambulance Trust (DAAT) is proud to announce its selection as one of South West Water’s charitable partners for the next 3 years. DAAT’s selection follows a staff vote.
Caroline Creer, Fundraising Director at Devon Air Ambulance Trust, says “We are delighted that South West Water has chosen us to be a charity partner over the next few years. We can proudly say that South West Water’s grant is helping us to save lives in our community”.
South West Water’s Head of Communications Alan Hyde said “We already support the communities we serve in many different ways, from education and careers events through to community volunteering and working arrangements with charities such as the river and wildlife trusts, the Citizens’ Advice Bureau, Age UK and the South West Lakes Trust.
“This year we asked staff to help us select charitable partners with a direct relevance to our business and our region. In the free choice section, staff voted overwhelmingly to support the Devon Air Ambulance Trust.
“We are delighted to add Devon Air Ambulance to our family of community and charity partnerships.”
The company took part in this year’s Commando Challenge which benefits Devon Air Ambulance Trust and the Royal Marine Charitable Trust Fund and plans to continue fundraising efforts for DAAT as the partnership goes forward.
