by Amber Valley Info on Monday 18 June 2018

On Saturday 9th June 2018, Lois Olivia Matthews donated £190.00 for the Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance (DLRAA).

Lois and her family presented Richard Fletcher Volunteer Derbyshire Community Representative for DLRAA, with the cheque at the Oakfield Farm Open Farm Sunday weekend event at Stanley Common. The donation came when Nine-year-old Lois with the help of her Mum Annette Matthews held an online auction to sell her handmade rocking horse in support of the Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance.

Lois was also awarded a special Certificate of Recognition for Innovative Fundraising Ideas & for raising lifesaving funds for your local air ambulance service. Her dedication and passion for the service is amazing and inspirational. Last year in the summer Lois set up a stall in the field selling cups of water to walkers to raise funds for the DLRAA.

Richard Fletcher Derbyshire Volunteer Community Representative for DLRAA said: “We are delighted to be presented with the cheque from Lois and her Family. DLRAA relies entirely on donations from members of the public as it receives no Government or National Lottery funding, therefore support from Lois and her family is really is invaluable and goes a long way to helping to keep our lifesaving service flying and saving lives.”

DLRAA was formed in 2008 and has carried out more than 12,000 Rescue missions and saved many lives in the process, each rescue mission costing on average £1,700 with DLRAA completing on average 5-6 missions every single day, 365 days a yearv
