The Riverside proudly supports Cornwall Air Ambulance
Did you know that in 2020, Cornwall Air Ambulance went to the aid of nearly 100 visitors to our region?
In fact, around 1 in 5 of patients helped by the Air Ambulance are here on their holidays, yet only 5% of donations come from the tourism sector. With your help, we can change this.
COVID has seen less change in our pockets which means fewer donation tins being used. The charity needs support of local tourism businesses like ours to fund these vital missions and save lives.
It’s mind-boggling that a service as essential as the Air Ambulance should depend on public funding. Cornish roads and the distance to hospital means we have the longest wait for ambulances in the country.
We need our Air Ambulance!
We aim to raise £250 this season from our guests and we will match-fund to this amount. We are very proud to be able to make this pledge.
If you like to walk the cliffs of Cornwall safe in the knowledge that highly trained paramedics can come to your aid via helicopter, despite some of the most inaccessible coves in the country, then we ask you to please donate what you can – even if it doesn’t seem much. We would really appreciate every penny.
We have set up an account through JustGiving so you can all keep an eye on how close we are to reaching our target.
Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
