Swindon Panel Society members have successfully raised £125 for Wiltshire Air Ambulance… by eating chocolate!
SPS members raise money by donating the proceeds from the members’ tuck shop to the Ambulance, continuing the tradition of Swindon Panel tuck shops from when it was in ‘main line’ use.
2019’s total profit was £125, equivalent to approximately 500 chocolate bars, drinks and crisps! (Up from £100 in 2018)
The Wiltshire Air Ambulance – Helimed22 – flies at speeds of up to 178mph and can reach anywhere in Wiltshire in 11 minutes. It attended 1233 incidents in 2019, at a cost of £3.75m (£10,000 per day), which is all raised by fundrasising.
Well done to all our members, and please keep buying tuck shop goodies!
