With the support of Micheldever Tyre Services, General Tire has been able to raise £14,000 to support the Children’s Air Ambulance Service. The company has been raising funds for the charity since the past two years, when they formed a partnership.
Fundraising Events Resulted In Current Amount Raised
The current total funds have been raised through the on-going dedication of the MTS network, which is part of the General Tyres independent tyre dealers. The team has undertaken fundraising efforts at individual business sites. Some of the funds were collected through donations made at various General Tire events.
In October, there were two 4×4 driving experiences hosted by General Tire in support of the air ambulance service. Both events were hosted at exceptional off-road centers, which were located in the northern and southern parts of the country. MTS organized the events and saw about 60 independent tyre dealers participating in both of them. After both these events, participants attended a charity fundraising auction and dinner.
Air Ambulance Service Receives Massive Support
Dealers of General Tire were able to provide support to Children’s Air Ambulance by raising more than £1,800. According to MTS trade marketing manager, Lisa Marie Davison, General Tire has been able to host several fundraising activities for Children’s Air Ambulance since their partnership began in 2015.
She also thanked the independent tyre dealers who put in a lot of effort to help raise funds for the charity through various events. National partnership manager for Children’s Air Ambulance, Jo Payne took the time to thank General Tire and MTS as well as the dealers on behalf of the charity for the backing. With the funds raised through their efforts, the charity will be able to continue providing life-saving patient transfer service for critically ill babies and children.
