Tribute to air ambulance fundraisers
THE achievements of people who have raised funds for the Kent Air Ambulance were celebrated at an awards dinner at the Leas Cliff Hall, Folkestone.
Among the guests was Mayor of Folkestone, Cllr Janet Andrews, who presented an award in the clubs category to Brian Pettit, of the Highways 100 Club.
Air ambulance crew members were given a standing ovation by those at the dinner.
Celebrities present included former Holby City actress Rebecca Grant and Olympic cycling gold medallist Jamie Staff.
The air ambulance has responded to more than 14,000 medical emergencies since it was established 20 years ago.
It relies almost entirely on voluntary donations.
