CCTV firm captures cash for air ambulance

STAFF from a CCTV firm worked hard to capture cash from generous people at the Emergency Services Show earlier this month.
Glinn Hambidge, a sales manager at Swindon firm Capture CCTV, and his colleagues organised a tombola at the event in Hullavington and managed to raise £184 for the Wiltshire Air Ambulance.
And last week they presented the cheque, raised with the help of donations of a Happy Meal toy stand from McDonald’s, a year’s supply of the Adver and a £522 voucher for car repairs at Pebley Beach.
Glinn said: “It went really well and we were delighted to raise so much money. It was more than we were expecting.
“There were loads of people there and it was a great event.
“We just wanted to go along and support the charity because they do some great work and get no support from the Government or councils, while serving all of Wiltshire.
“We even had people coming up to us at the show and telling us how the charity had helped them. “One man said he was in a crash and would not have survived if it had not been for the air ambulance.
“They need £750,000 just to stay in the air each year and so anything we can do to help or support that then we wanted to do it.
“When we presented them the cheque the staff were delighted.”
