Charity of the Year 2020
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 in 2019 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. During 2019 members held raffles, a cake stall and a tennis tournament and raised more than £1,900 for EAAA.
It has been decided to continue to support the EAAA charity throughout 2020. You can find out more about the air ambulance by clicking on the link below.
