Celebrity Ambassador, Lisa Snowdon, has joined the team at Essex & Herts Air Ambulance (EHAAT), to officially launch the charity’s new corporate fundraising initiative, Brew for the Crew, which starts in April and runs through to the end of the year.
Sponsored by Phase 2 Planning and Milbank, Brew for the Crew is aimed at businesses across Essex and Hertfordshire, encouraging them to support the air ambulance’s life-saving service. EHAAT is looking for willing organisations to arrange their own event which, as well as providing a warm and friendly atmosphere for people to partake in tea, coffee, cakes and fundraising, will also offer a chance for staff to enjoy some important social and wellbeing time.
The additional icing on the cake is that for all organisations taking part, there will also be a competition – kindly sponsored by The English Cream Tea Co – with the highest fundraisers winning their very own brew with the EHAAT crew in Spring 2024 at its North Weald airbase.
Lisa Snowdon said: “As an Ambassador for this incredible charity and a fan of a good cuppa, I am delighted to be supporting ‘Brew for the Crew’.
“We all know how important it is to take a break during the day, to regroup and recharge. I know how crucial it is to have a sense of community, of friendship and being able to sit down and talk at work to decompress, to laugh, to cry, to express whatever it is that you’re feeling is a very integral part of the day.
“So what better way than by getting together with colleagues to help raise vital funds for Essex & Herts Air Ambulance – your local life-saving charity.”
The service provided by Essex & Herts Air Ambulance is free of charge, but the charity receives limited direct funding from the Government and none from the National Lottery. Each mission costs around £2,200 and it costs in excess of £750,000 every month to keep the service operational and cover all charitable costs.
This would not be possible without the generosity and goodwill of people in Essex, and Hertfordshire.
