Greenslade Taylor Hunt staff have been supporting the vital work of the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance with a string of events throughout the year.

Vicky Keating, Head of Finance, HR & Compliance at the firm, handed over a cheque for £6,531.49 to representatives of the charity at their Wellington head office.

Each air ambulance mission costs around £3,000, while it’s operational costs are over £5 million a year.

Duncan Brown, Chairman of GTH, said: “The air ambulance is a wonderful charity that relies entirely upon private donations.”

Money was raised through The Coast to Coast bike ride, which saw Fiona Laramy, Claire Alers-Hankey, George Bone and Catherine Wood cycle a 55-mile route through Dorset and Somerset.

Other funds were raised via cake sales and a coastal boat trip, while GTH donated £2,500 from its charitable trust to support the charity’s crucial work.
