The Captain's Charity for 2020 has been selected

11 Jan 2020

After much deliberation your Captains, Shirley and Richard, have nominated their charity for the coming year as:

AIR AMBULANCE – KENT, SURREY & SUSSEX

The AA-KSS provides a 24 hour service covering an area of 2,853 square miles.  They operate from headquarters located at Rochester Airport with their three helicopters being hangered and maintained at Redhill Aerodrome.  In addition to the aircraft, they run four rapid response 4x4s.  The service is able to reach any location in its area within 25 minutes. 

Their annual running costs amount to £14m of which some 89% is secured through fundraising and donations.  Each year they attend some 30,000 incidents. 

The Club will be raising funds for them throughout the year through the deployment of collection boxes.  On Sunday 24th May we will be holding our Club Charity Fun Day from which all the proceeds of the day will be earmarked for the Captains’ Charity.
