Midlands Air Ambulance Charity would like to thank the 500 guests who attended the charity’s recent Recognition Awards and Charity Ball, as they helped to raise £80,000 for the vitally important life-saving service.
Among the famous faces who attended were rugby star Mike Tindall MBE, Paralympic and Olympic stars, Lee Pearson MBE OBE CBE, Zac Purchase MBE, Jane Sixsmith MBE, David Stone MBE, and Ryan Cockbill, plus Phil Upton who kindly compered the event.
The glittering evening, which was sponsored by TH Baker started with a drinks reception and the arrival of two of the charity’s red helicopters, which landed on Edgbaston Stadium’s famous pitch. Guests were then treated to a four-course dinner, followed by live entertainment, casino, live auction and prestigious raffle.
The £80,000 raised on the evening will go directly towards funding more than 30 Midland Air Ambulance missions across the region.
