Our Charity of the Year 2017
The sky’s the limit when it comes to Country Harvest’s charity fundraising this year.
Our chosen charity for 2017 is North West Air Ambulance (NWAA) which provides such an invaluable emergency service across the area.
For every £9 we raise, that’s another minute the helicopter can be in the air. Bearing in mind most missions last about an hour that means we need to raise £540 for each trip.
One of the real benefits of the NWAA is not only can they get to difficult, rural areas but they also take the patient to the correct hospital for them – whether that’s Kendal or Lancaster or specialist care hospitals like Alder Hey.
Country Harvest will put on a couple of fundraisers this year which we hope all our staff and customers will get involved in and there are also collection boxes in our Gift Hall and Coffee Shop should you be feeling generous. If you wish to make a larger donation please let us know.
“I have a very personal reason to thank the NWAA as many years ago they helped my family in an emergency situation. I’ve never forgotten how grateful I am to them and this is my small way of paying something back. We’ve got lots of events planned and I hope everyone will get behind this fantastic charity,” said Mike Clark, owner of Country Harvest.
