Chesterford Research Park gives Air Ambulance a lift with �400 raffle donation
CHESTERFORD Research Park’s housekeeping team has raised �400 for the East Anglian Air Ambulance Service with a good, old fashioned raffle.
The team was led by Karen Douglas who pulled together an enticing array of prizes from paint balling sessions to a ‘James’ Hoover, bottles of whiskey and home made cakes.
Tickets were sold to park tenants with Phil Leonard from BioFocus scooping the coveted ‘James’ Hoover.
Park manager Katherine Maguire said: “As part of the community, Chesterford Research Park is passionate about doing whatever we can to support crucial local services, such as the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
“Karen and the team demonstrated this passion by raising �400 to help keep our air ambulances airborne and we are very proud of their achievements.”
