We were delighted to raise the grand total of £3,472.14 recently in support of Essex & Herts Air Ambulance and London’s Air Ambulance.

Purchase Direct’s ‘Charity Day’ takes place twice a year and all employees are given the opportunity to propose a chosen charity or community project to benefit from the funds raised.

Jemma Young from the Utilities Service team nominated Essex & Herts Air Ambulance and London’s Air Ambulance.

“My chosen charities deliver a first-class pre-hospital emergency medical service to the people of Essex, Hertfordshire and London and they rely upon the generosity from people and businesses to remain operational and keep saving lives. Without them my partner would not be here so I wanted to give something back,” commented Jemma.

The fun-packed day involved Emergency Services fancy dress, medical themed quizzes and tournaments, blood pressure checks, bingo, raffle and even a sponsored beard shave.
