Firm smash £4k fundraising target for Kent Air Ambulance!

  • Posted

KENT law firm Martin Tolhurst Solicitors has raised a massive £4,400 for the Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance Trust.

The solicitors presented staff at the Air Ambulance Trust with a cheque on 15th December. The cash will go towards the cost of medical training for a doctor or paramedic and a new ventilator to help patients breathe during emergency call outs and procedures.

To raise the funds, staff at Martin Tolhurst Solicitors have taken part in a variety of different events and activities including: sweepstakes, bake-off challenges and cake sales, themed dress-up days, a Christmas hamper raffle and a sponsored colour run where 12 staff members completed a 5km run whilst being covered in coloured dyes which raised a total £2,000 alone.

The firm finally reached its fundraising target following a very successful Staff Christmas Raffle.

Julie Clare, representative of the Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance Trust said:

“The charity partnership with Martin Tolhurst Solicitors has been fantastic the team has shown some great ways to fundraise and the money raised will certainly help to make a real difference to the service we provide.”

Richard Carter, Managing Partner of Martin Tolhurst Solicitors said:
