The King William Pub has donated £1300.00 for the Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance (DLRAA).
Dave Sutton, Landlord of the King William, presented Richard Fletcher, Derbyshire Volunteer Community Representatives for DLRAA, with the money on one of the pub’s Quiz Nights where there was a record attendance of 49 people despite the cold and wintry conditions.
The Quizzers decided they would support the DLRAA throughout this year and raise money during their quiz nights held every Wednesday evening.
Richard said: ‘I was delighted to be presented with the cheque from Dave and the King William Pub Regulars. DLRAA relies entirely on donations from members of the public as it receives no Government or National Lottery funding; therefore, support from groups like this is invaluable and goes a long way to helping to keep our life-saving service flying and saving lives. We would like to thank all the staff and customers for the generosity and fantastic support they have given.’
DLRAA was formed in 2008 and has carried out more than 9,200 rescue missions and saved many lives in the process, each rescue mission costing on average £1,700 with DLRAA completing, on average, 5-6 missions every single day, 365 days a year.
