Veterinarians give DLRAA paws to celebrate

Bleinham Veterinary Centre have raised £216 for Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance after raffling off a Peter the Polar Bear stuffed toy and a box of chocolates.

The money was presented to Richard Fletcher, Derbyshire community representative for DLRAA, at the centre in Ashbourne on Tuesday 13th January 2015.

Kathryn Batley, who works at the centre, organised the festive raffle for the Christmas season. She and the rest of Bleinham Veterinary Centre want to thank all of their customers for the generosity and fantastic support they have given.

Richard said: “I was delighted to be presented with the cheque from Kathryn Batley from the Blenheim Veterinary Centre. DLRAA relies entirely on donations from members of the public as it receives no government funding. Support from people like Kathryn Batley and the Blenheim Veterinary Centre really is invaluable, and goes a long way to helping to keep our lifesaving service flying.”

DLRAA would also like to thank everyone who joined in to give Peter the Polar Bear a brand new home and raise money for their lifesaving service.
