Thank You Firework Champions

Thank you to everyone who supported Children’s Air Ambulance at Firework Champions at Newby Hall, Ripon on Saturday July 23. What an amazing night! Richard Durham & Heather Burton collected a fantastic £591.22 in donations.

We cannot do any of this without the fantastic support of Mat and the Firework Champions Team who have chosen us for a 2nd Year as their Charity of the Year. Thank you also to Brett from Sound4Hire for giving us power so we could use the new inflatable helicopter, which was loaned to us by Jamie from General Tire Micheldever and to Russ for the mentions and interviews and your help with Teddy Conga. Thank you to Newby Hall, Kylies Diner for food and refreshments and to all the Firework Display Teams. What a great fun filled family night out, amazing fireworks and the weather stayed fine.

The following week we had a fantastic night we had at Stanford Hall with four brilliant firework displays from Gala Fireworks, Cotswold Fireworks Ltd and Shockwave Pyrotechnics Ltd. Well done to Stanford Hall winners Gala Fireworks and a very beautiful ending from MLE with Mat’s tribute display to his Dad very moving again.

We’re delighted to announce the total raised from the raffle, donations and merchandise sales for The Children’s Air Ambulance was an amazing £2145.52. A very big thank you again to Mat Lawrence and Firework Champions for all of your support for The Childriponren’s Air Ambulance allowing us to be at every venue this summer.

A further very big thank you goes to Sytner BMW Leicester for all of your support and for donating such fantastic prizes to The Children’s Air Ambulance and helping us raise such a brilliant amount.

Thank you to the generosity of the audience buying raffle tickets, making donations, buying merchandise talking to us about the work of The Childrens Air Ambulance and to everyone who joined Teddy Paramedic and what has to be the biggest Teddy Conga yet what great fun that was. If anyone took pictures with Teddy Paramedic please feel free to post your pictures to Teddy’s page.

Thank you Russ McLean & Dean Colvin and Dawn Colvin for your support with this and mic announcements.
