Christmas could come early for supporters of Midlands Air Ambulance Charity after the pre-hospital emergency service kicked-off its end-of-year fundraising appeal with the launch of its Festive Rapid Response Raffle.
The raffle gives supporters the chance to win large cash prizes, including a £3,000 first prize, plus the money raised via ticket sales will directly help fund future lifesaving missions enabling aircrew to attend and treat some of the Midlands most critically ill and injured patients.
Along with the £3,000 jackpot, there are several other prizes worth £500, £50, and £25 also up for grabs.
As well as giving supporters the chance to win cash prizes in time for Christmas, monies raised from the raffle will go towards Midlands Air Ambulance Charity’s daily lifesaving missions throughout the upcoming festive period. Last year, more than £120,000 was raised through the charity’s Air30 Rapid Response Raffle, this helped make 74 missions possible for the pre-hospital emergency service – 37 via air ambulance and 37 in its critical care cars.
Emma Wood, head of fundraising and marketing for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, said: “This is a cracker of a chance to become £3,000 better off in the run up to Christmas. I hope the local community gets behind our festive fundraiser to help raise as much money as possible for our lifesaving charity’s daily missions.”
The Festive Rapid Response Raffle is open to anyone aged 18 and over. Each ticket costs £1 and there’s no limit on the number of tickets each person can buy. Once bought, entrants’ unique raffle ticket number will be automatically entered into the prize draw. The closing date is Friday 2nd December and the draw will take place on Friday 9th December.
