Charity of the Year

Charity of the Year 2019

This year's Charity of the Year is The East Anglian Air Ambulance, which exists to save lives by delivering highly skilled doctors and critical care paramedics by air or car to seriously ill or injured people. This life-saving charity is only kept airborne thanks to support from community fundraising.

Letchworth Sports and Tennis Club chose to support the EAAA following the tragic death of 14-year-old Luke Hobson, whose mum is a member of the Club. The loss has touched many members, who wanted to take some positive action. A raffle was held at the Wimbledon Ballot in April 2019 and raised £450 for the charity, and further events are in the pipeline.
