An insurance broker has announced it will be supporting the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) for the next three years.
Ipswich-based Ryan’s has chosen the life-saving organisation after its chairman Tim Ryan was helped by the EAAA following a motoring accident.
Mr Ryan said: “Having had my own life saved by the paramedics and EAAA I am delighted that we are committing to supporting them for the next three years to help them to carry on their valuable work saving lives.”
Ryan’s staff will be organising a number of fundraising events to raise money for EAAA including dress-down days, monthly “day off work” raffles, cake baking and themed events.
Sophie Mathew, area fundraising manager at EAAA, said: “We are thrilled that Ryan’s have chosen EAAA as their chosen charity, and knowing EAAA attended Tim as a patient, they know first-hand just how their support can really help.”
