Wilkos put the boot in for Wellies for Helis

Our charity is saying a huge thank you to Wilkos after our local stores raised an enormous £1,662.60 for our Wellies for Helis campaign over two days.

The Alfreton, Matlock, Hinckley, Allenton, Ripley, Nuneaton and Allestree stores all joined forces to raise vital funds for their local air ambulance services.

Staff at the stores put their best wellie forward to collect money for our campaign, raising the fantastic amount of money on 22nd and 23rd of May.

Collette Richardson, one of the charity’s fundraising coordinators, said: “They all looked like they were having a great time, and raising such a lot of money over just two days is fantastic. Wilkos really set the standard for the Wellies for Helis campaign. We’d like to thank all the staff who took part, and everyone who donated on the day.”
