Air Ambulance 24
It all takes place on Saturday 5th March 2016 – everyone with a fundraising idea who believes they can raise £100 in just one day should simply register with the life-saving Charity.

Sabi Blyth, Fundraising Manager, Essex Air Ambulance said: “We’re hoping to inspire people of all ages and from all walks of life to take up this challenge. It costs £2,700 for every life-saving mission we fly and last year 24/100 raised over £7,500 for Essex Air Ambulance – which just goes to prove a day really can make a difference.

Paul Parker, Managing Director, Just Wheel Repair said: “Keeping our customers safe is a huge priority at Just Wheel Repair, so we understand how important the Air Ambulance is to those on the road. We are proud to be supporting this life-saving charity and can’t wait to see everyone get involved on the day!”

Last year saw individuals and businesses across Essex take part in the 24 hour challenge, including 8 year olds Casey Wright, Coryn Chaplin and 5 year old Oscar Wright who held their own ‘mini-triathlon’. The trio challenged themselves to run 100 metres times their age, swim a length of a swimming pool times their ages and finally cycle 1km times their age. They completed the challenge in time and raised a combined total of £456.16.

Coryn spoke to us about her challenge and said: “It was so much fun, we all did really well. We’ve seen the helicopter before so was happy to help keep it flying.”

Sabi continued: “Whether it be a skydive, a vintage fashion sale or a cup cake decorating competition– we’re hoping supporters will be inspired to try something new and join us to put the ‘fun’ into fundraising!

“We would like to say a massive thank you to our sponsor Just Wheel Repair for their fantastic support.”
