We were pleased to announce our Charity of the Year 2018 - 19 would be Devon Air Ambulance Trust back in May. We received such positive feedback from the friends and clients of Beviss & Beckingsale.
Mark Carlisle, Partner in the firm's Axminster Office said, "After the successes of our last years campaign, when we raised just over £9,000 for the Farming Community Network, I am delighted to announce that this year's Charity of the Year is Devon Air Ambulance. DAA provides urgent medical assistance to people in and around Devon with its two helicopters allowing the charity to reach emergency scenes very quickly thereby saving hundreds of lives every year. I am looking to a successful year ahead."
Zoe Gaitskell, Partner at the Honiton Office, has had first-hand experience of Devon Air Ambulance; "Following a car accident in 1995, Devon Air Ambulance were called to the scene to help as the collision took place in a remote part of Exmoor. I was taken to the nearest hospital by helicopter. I continue to be grateful for their care and quick thinking at the time. It is a great charity to be supporting and I personally will be doing everything I can to raise as much money as possible. Please visit our events and offices to join in donating and fun surrounding the fundraising".
The whole process was carried out quickly and efficiently, especially as I had little time.
