Devon air Ambulance

Post by ptolemyx »

At any SWB event I attend throughout 2021 I'll be having a whipround for the Devon Air Ambulance, starting with the ride on 30th May. I'll ask one of you to verify the amount collected and donate it via the Justgiving page I've set up for donations from SWB events. This has been cleared by the admin team. We will not be doing any named charity rides or events as they will require public liability insurance and can be quite frankly, a nightmare to organise. I'll keep a tally of our donations and we'll see how much help SWB can give this year.
At any SWB event that I do not attend someone else might like to do a whipround and donate via the Justgiving page.

It will always be informal and COMPLETELY VOLUNTARY and certainly not a condition of any SWB event.

The Justgiving page we'll be using is now on my signature at the bottom of my posts:-

Don't forget, anyone can do a whipround at a SWB event if I'm not there and donate the proceeds via the Justgiving page :-bd
