The Great Western Air Ambulance

Grosvenor’s Charity of the Year

The Great Western Air Ambulance Charity (GWAAC) has received a boost in their fundraising efforts thanks to Financial Advisers at Grosvenor Consultancy Ltd.

Grosvenor chose the GWAAC as their charity of the year in 2015 and through an array of fundraising events including cake sales, second-hand bra and shoe collections and a golf day they have managed to raise an impressive £4,450. Alongside these more traditional fundraising events, the team also came up with the novel idea of making a donation each time a new client began working with Grosvenor.

The team from Grosvenor recently visited the GWAAC headquarters to present them with a cheque and to have a closer look at the vital work that the Great Western Air Ambulance Charity do. They had a tour of both the facility and the aircraft, which only underlined for them the importance of local business support for the life saving charity. As a result of their visit, Grosvenor are proud to announce their intention to continue fundraising for GWAAC for an additional 12 months.

Ben Olson, Grosvenor MD said, “Everyone at Grosvenor has really got behind our efforts to raise money for this amazing charity. We have seen for ourselves what remarkable work they carry out and as a result we are excited to support them for another year. Plans are already well underway to help us reach our new target of £6,000 and we are really looking forward to working with the charity to help the local community.”

Emma Carter, Head of Fundraising & Marketing and Dr Greg Cranston, (Critical Care Doctor) who received the cheque on behalf of the GWAAC said, “We were pleased to show the team from Grosvenor around our base, and are so grateful that they have chosen to support us for another year. Every day we are there for people who are seriously ill or injured, performing expert pre-hospital care at the scene of an incident. This is often the difference between life and death, but we can’t do this without the support of the public. Thank you to everyone at Grosvenor, the money you raise really will make a difference.”
