Hunt’s Donate over £7k to The Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance

Following a year of fundraising activity, Hunt’s Foodservice are proud to have recently donated £7,311 to The Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance.

The Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance was nominated as Hunt’s chosen charity for 2018/19. The company have run various initiatives throughout the year which has seen Hunt’s staff, customers and the local community get involved to help reach that fantastic total.

Throughout the year, when a Hunt’s customer buys a selected number of products the company donates £1 to the charity. Hunt’s have also hosted fundraising events such as golf days and the much-anticipated Christmas jumper day.

Over 40 Hunt’s employees got involved raising a huge chunk of money by running the Henstridge based Rocket Race. The Rocket Race is an (approx.) 8km cross country race with numerous obstacles to get people climbing over, crawling under and wading through.

Presenting the cheque to The Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance was Richard Hunt, Managing Director at Hunt’s Foodservice.

“I am delighted to be donating this huge amount to The Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance. They are a fantastic local charity who help people in the most desperate situations.

Thank you to all customers and staff members who helped the company raise this huge amount of money.

Keep up the good work Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance!”
