The region’s air ambulance has been given a generous donation thanks to a tyre company’s initiative.
Oakham Tyre Company has given the Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance £350 as part of Kumho Tyres’ Cash for Causes campaign.
The international company pledged to make a difference in local communities by donating money to deserving causes.
As part of the initiative, the company’s Oakham branch also gave £150 to East Midlands Immediate Care Scheme. Customers were given the chance to vote for which cause the branch should donate the majority of the money to.
Nationally, Kumho Tyres gave away more than £100,000 in the Cash for Causes initiative. For more information visit www.kumhocauses.com
