Devon Air Ambulance’s mascot, Ambrose Bear, recently visited Nuffield Health Exeter Hospital to accept a fantastic cheque for £1,700.

Tracy Owen, Fundraising Manager of Devon Air Ambulance said:  

It’s been a pleasure working with the team at Nuffield Health Exeter Hospital over the past two years. Their staff social committee and staff have truly got behind the charity and raised a fantastic amount. On behalf of the charity and our patients, thank you.

Debbie Rose, Chair of Nuffield Health Exeter Hospital Staff Social Committee, said:

The staff voted to support Devon Air Ambulance because the charity provides such a critical service for Devon communities.  As the UK’s largest healthcare charity colleagues across the Nuffield are passionate about supporting other health related organisations. This was a fundraising record for the hospital and I am delighted to have been able to present £1,700 today.

The money was raised by various initiatives including cakes sales, a Christmas raffle, donations, a collection box on reception and a lucky dip for staff and patients.
