A fundraiser for the Devon Air Ambulance Trust took place this February at the Globe Inn, in Newtown, with about 100 people attending. The event was created by Martin Sanders, for whom it was his project in Landmark Education’s self-expression and leadership programme.
Sanders says that Â£447 has been raised so far as a result of the fundraiser, according to an article in Express & Echo. Martin’s band, Evolver, played at the event, as well as bands Deaf Fish and Echoes. Martin reported that Lorraine Carroll, the band’s lead singer, also arranged the event, and that the Globe Inn made their space available at no cost.
“The air ambulance is a really special charity which operates solely through donations,” he noted. The Devon Air Ambulance Trust is a charity that operates two helicopter air ambulances in Devon County, allowing faster treatment and a greater likelihood of survival for those who need immediate medical care.
