She said: “The people of Devon fund Devon’s two emergency helicopters and have the right to know how we raise that money and we have very strict policies on how we go about this.

“It is important for DAAT and other charitable organisations that are...

Kubota and Devon Air Ambulance Trust prepare for take off

A market leading machinery manufacturer has teamed up with Devon Air Ambulance Trust to launch ‘Working Safely, Saving Lives’ – a campaign that aims to raise £250,000 for UK air ambulance charities whilst also promoting the importance of health and safety in the workplace.

Dave Roberts, Kubota UK’s Managing Director, said: “Devon Air Ambulance...
