Sharp’s Brewery has been announced as the first Major Appeal Partner for the Cornwall Air Ambulance New Heli Appeal.
The company has donated £10,000 to the New Heli Appeal, which seeks to bring a next generation air ambulance helicopter to Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly by April 2020.
Sharp’s Brewery has supported the lifesaving charity for more than six years, providing beer for fundraising events and taking on sponsored challenges. In 2014, the company raised more than £12,800 from donating 5p from every pint they sold.
James Nicholls, Senior Brand Manager at Sharp’s Brewery said: “We are extremely proud to be the first Major Appeal Partner for the Cornwall Air Ambulance’s New Heli Appeal. Cornwall Air Ambulance is so vital to the Cornish resident community and visitors alike, and we are delighted to be part of the appeal to raise £2.5m to bring a next generation air ambulance helicopter to the region and save even more lives.
“At least three current members of the team at Sharp’s Brewery in Rock, North Cornwall, have been rescued by Cornwall Air Ambulance so the fantastic work that the charity does day in day out is very close our hearts. We have a strong partnership with the Cornwall Air Ambulance and this will only cement it further. We’d like to thank the continued support of our customers and Sharp’s drinkers as the high demand for our beers means we have been able to give such a sizable donation.”
Steph Preston-Evans, Cornwall Air Ambulance Fundraising Officer- Corporate, said: “It’s wonderful to have the support of Sharp’s Brewery for the New Heli Appeal. Over the years the team have shown real dedication to the lifesaving work of the charity and they have been a pleasure to work with. I would like to say thank you from everyone at Cornwall Air Ambulance for their continued support.”
