We are thrilled to announce that, following our hugely successful three-year partnership with Southampton Airport, we have been shortlisted in the Short-term Partnership category at the Third Sector Business Charity Awards.
Throughout the three year partnership, supporters, customers and staff came together to raise a phenomenal £100,000 to help keep the Air Ambulance flying and saving lives. Southampton Airport’s popular ‘Runway Run’ in aid of HIOWAA was a highlight of the partnership, with supporters turning out in their masses and raising over £45,000 through ticket sales alone. Airport staff took part in skydives, bake sales and bucket collections for HIOWAA and members of the Southampton Airport Fire Service raised nearly £4,000 when they cycled 655 miles from Aberdeen Airport to Southampton Airport.
The winners will be announced in the coming weeks.
