On Thursday September 29th 2016, the Greetham Gathering’s Committee and helpers met Charlotte Marson from the Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance Service (DLRAA) at Colin Easson Motors in Cottesmore, Rutland, to present a cheque in support of the DRLAA. In 2014, the first year of the Greetham Gatherings, the committee were able to present a cheque to the DRLAA for £450. In 2015 the donation was £1500. 2016 has proven to be a much more challenging year (with some poor weather) but also a more successful year for the Gatherings, and with all the extra support from the public, the committee were delighted to present a cheque for £2000 to the DLRAA.
Without the fabulous support from all the enthusiasts and members of the public who come to the Gatherings, this would not be possible. Their contribution to making the Gatherings a success is truly appreciated and we look forward to being able to further increase our donation to the DLRAA in 2017.
