Tamlyns charity sponsorship of the Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance

Tamlyns charity sponsorship of the Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance

Tamlyns estate and letting agents in Bridgwater are pleased to announce that they are now sponsors of the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance.

The charity, which receives no government funding, needs to raise £2 million every year to operate, with each mission costing approximately £2,500.

They rely on the generosity of donations, sponsorship and fundraising from communities and businesses like Tamlyns to continue the invaluable work they do.

Mark Franklin, Sales Manager at Tamlyns has been a long-standing supporter of the charity, having completed the Air Ambulance’s 54-mile Coast to Coast Cycle Challenge on behalf of Tamlyns in May, earlier this year.

Mark said: “We are so proud to support the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance; a truly worthy charity which provides a lifesaving service that potentially anyone of us, at any time, could need. As well as our sponsorship, we will be planning a calendar of fundraising events which will enable us to raise even more money to assist in the investment of new equipment and training in the years to come.”

Plans are underway for a new helicopter with state-of-the-art equipment by the end of 2016, which will provide the capability of flying during night time hours, as well as a doctor onboard every mission. This will make a difference to many more people’s lives across Somerset and Dorset.

If you would like to donate to the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance, drop into the Tamlyns office where there are collection buckets at the front desk.
