Family firm gives Air Ambulance a boost

Directors of a family-owned Shropshire business have raised £3,350 for the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity.

The money has been raised by this year’s Llanfyllin Show President Moyra Griffiths and her daughter, Joy, who are both directors of the renowned Tudor Griffiths Group based in Ellesmere.

Moyra was delighted to be invited to become show president as she has strong family connections with Llanfyllin, and celebrated her appointment with a president’s lunch at Aston Hall.

“My husband, Billy, is the Chairman of the Tudor Griffiths Group, and as well as the lunch we held a joint birthday celebration to mark his 75th birthday and our daughter Joy’s 45th birthday, where our guests gave generous donations.

“Thanks to their incredible generosity, we have now been able to donate the money to the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity which does such vital work all over the county and beyond.”

Joy Griffiths handed the cheque to Maria Jones, fund-raising manager for the charity, and said she was very pleased that friends and family were able to have contributed such a great amount.

“As a family we’ve always been loyal supporters of local charities, and we decided to use this very special year of family celebrations to help a cause that makes such a difference to so many people’s lives.”

Midlands Air Ambulance is the charity responsible for funding and operating three air ambulances serving the communities of Shropshire, Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Staffordshire, Worcestershire and the West Midlands.

Covering the largest air ambulance operating range in the UK, since 1991 the charity has responded to more than 46,000 missions averaging 2,000 per year.

It receives no Government or National Lottery funding, and over £7 million is needed each year to keep the three air ambulances operational, which is donated entirely by the public and local businesses.
