We are very pleased to announce the beginning of a two-year partnership with leading independent brewer Hall and Woodhouse.
Our charity will be one of eight local air ambulances across the south of England that will be supported by the brewer. Through fundraising activities organised by fifty one local Hall & Woodhouse public houses, such as quiz nights, sponsored events, fun days and sports tournaments, the partnership hopes to raise £250,000 to be split equally between the charities. The money raised through the partnership will help us continue to provide London with an advanced trauma care service 24/7 and to treat an average of five critically injured patients every day.
Lucinda Gray, sixth-generation of the Woodhouse family and Hall & Woodhouse Charity Champion, commented:
“As a company that places community at the heart of our business, supporting worthy causes is very important to Hall & Woodhouse. These local air ambulance charities cover the counties where our public houses are located and each of them work tirelessly to care for critically ill or injured patients within our community. We are extremely proud to have so many of our public houses backing the campaign and being able to support this wonderful cause.”
Eleanor Deans, London’s Air Ambulance Corporate & Events Coordinator said:
"We are thrilled to be working with Hall and Woodhouse as their new Charity Partner. This exciting partnership, with eight air ambulance charities being supported by one umbrella organisation, will help us save lives. It is made all the more special to know that Hall and Woodhouse members voted to support our charity. The partnership will not only help us to raise funds, but also awareness of our work, as it will enable us to engage with people across London in the communities that we serve."
