As the festive season has well and truly faded into fond memories, Agwood wanted to take a moment to express heartfelt gratitude to everyone who made the Charity Christmas Market a resounding success.

Agwood raised an incredible £724.05 for the KSS Air Ambulance Charity. This achievement wouldn’t have been possible without all who attended and contributed. Steve Day, Agwood’s General Manager and Gemma Lilly, Agwood’s Marketing Manager, had the pleasure of presenting a cheque to Fran Vale, the Community Fundraiser from KSS Air Ambulance during the first week in March.

KSS are grateful for Agwood’s support. As an organisation committed to saving lives each day, they rely heavily on the generosity of local businesses and communities to keep their life-saving service operational. With operating costs amounting to £16.6 million annually, equating to £45,000 per day, contributions play a crucial role in sustaining their efforts.

It’s noteworthy that a significant portion of the air ambulances work involves supporting the agricultural, farming, and equestrian communities, given the nature of their operations and the rural settings they inhabit.

In 2022 alone, KSS responded to approximately 50 incidents related to these industries, highlighting the vital role KSS play in ensuring the safety and well-being of individuals within these sectors. Agwood’s support not only enables KSS Air Ambulance to continue their life-saving mission but also empowers them to innovate, improve treatments, and enhance technology, ultimately increasing their capacity to deliver the best possible outcomes for all patients.

Once again Agwood would like to thank everyone whose generosity has made a lasting impact, and look forward to continuing to support the KSS Air Ambulance Charity in the future.
