Garsons garden centre and farm shop have presented Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance with a cheque for £4,383.
The award-winning centre in Titchfield chose HIOWAA as their charity of the year for 2018.
Throughout the year, they held late night shopping events and had charity pots at the checkouts.
They also invited two very special visitors to the centre at Christmas. Reindeers were welcomed to the Garsons team, much to the joy of local children and their families who gave generously as they met them.
Garsons Charity Coordinator, Rachael Rogers, said:
“Every day the Air Ambulance saves lives across our county and it has been a privilege to support them over the past year. A huge thank you to our customers for being so generous and helping us achieve this fantastic total.”
Partnerships Manager at Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance, Ray Southam, added:
“The support we have received from everyone at Garsons has been truly outstanding and we are so grateful to everyone who has given up their time to help us. It costs over £15,000 a day to keep our life-saving service operational and we could not do this without the support that we receive from local businesses in our community. Thank you to Garsons and your customers.”
