Local retailer donates £20,000 to East Anglian Air Ambulance

Discount retailer B&M has donated £20,000 to East Anglian Air Ambulance to help them be able to operate and provide care for people across the East of England, 365 days a year.

The Charity currently operates two ambulances to provide lifesaving rapid response emergency care and since they launched in 2000 they have attended over 19,000 missions, touching the lives of many thousands of people.

Alastair Wilson, Medical Director at East Anglian Air Ambulance, said: “This year we have to raise over 11 million pounds to keep our crew in the air. B&M’s donation will help fuel and equip our helicopters to provide A&E level care to critically ill patients at the scene of their accident. We are very grateful for their generous gift.”

The funds were raised from carrier bag charges in local stores throughout East Anglia, since the mandatory carrier bag charging was introduced in England, Scotland, and Northern Ireland last year B&M stores across the country have raised more than £650,000 in total – with a whopping £100,000 of the fund is being donated to the Association of Air Ambulances alone.

B&M’s Area Manager, Jeremy Robins, said: “My team chose East Anglian Air Ambulance because they’re a fantastic charity who deserve this cash boost. They rely on the generosity of the public and what better way to help out than with how great is it that local shoppers can give back to the community by helping saving the lives of others.”
