Midlands Air Ambulance charity by donating a further £10,000 and has promised
to support the charity for another three years. The business has supported
the charity since 2004 and this donation raises their total contributions to

Tom Fanning, chief executive of MEL,
explains why Midlands Air Ambulance charity is so important to the company. He
said; “It’s a sad fact that over 50% of the incidents the Air Ambulance
responds to are road traffic accidents. We believe it is only right that we
support the charity as much as we can, after all they watch over our roads and
our customers.”

Stef Langford-Brown, corporate fundraising
manager for the charity said; “Midlands Air Ambulance receives no government or
national lottery funding and relies solely on the generosity of the public. We
need to raise £6million every year simply to operate. A substantial part of
that figure is raised by the support of local companies and we are ever
grateful for their support.”
