Camel Valley has donated thousands of pounds over the years to help keep the Cornwall Air Ambulance helicopter flying.
This year the company donated £2,270- bringing their total donations to the charity to over £23,000.
The Bodmin-based winery has been in partnership with the charity for more than 9 years, raising vital funds from their popular vineyard tours.
Bob Lindo, owner of Camel Valley Vineyard, said: “My daughter Esther was taken to Treliske in the Cornwall Air Ambulance; last year we marked the hundredth rescue, for which we paid for the fuel. This year we concentrated on the New Heli Appeal. I’ve been rescued by helicopter myself and it’s not a trip I’d like to repeat!”
Steph Bray, Corporate Fundraiser at Cornwall Air Ambulance, said: “As a charity, Cornwall Air Ambulance relies on donations to keep flying and saving lives. On November 5, the crew reached their 1000th mission this year. It’s thanks to businesses like Camel Valley that we can help hundreds of patients in need of emergency care every year.
“It’s great to work with such a dedicated team and we are very thankful for their support.”
