Some 80 people attended the evening at The Beacon and raised £200 for the flying medics

A quiz night and supper at Kilmington raised vital funds for Devon’s flying medics.

Around 80 people gathered at The Beacon, Kilmington’s Baptist Church, for the event.

Treated to a lovely cooked meal, drinks at the bar and under the gaze of Quiz Master Tony Warwick, the crowd was subjected to a brilliant selection of questions.

By the end of the evening £200 had been raised for the Devon Air Ambulance Trust and everyone declared the event a soaring success.

Devon Air Ambulance Trust is a registered charity whose aim is “to relieve sickness and injury in and around the county of Devon through provision of an emergency Air Ambulance Service.”

In 2017 it cost £6.4 million to run the service. In addition, the Trust needs to raise around £1m more to build capital funds in order to ensure it can replace its aircraft after ten years’ service and to meet significant maintenance and repair costs, plus ambitious plans to extend its operating hours.
