Wilber's cash for clothes

Andrew Coldwell

The Wiltshire Air Ambulance Charitable Trust has a mission statement that is simple and effective – “they save lives.” The charity does this by raising sufficient funds to finance an air ambulance service in Wiltshire and adjacent counties. 

This year Wiltshire Air Ambulance have been building a new airbase for their helicopter, aircrew and charity team, after receiving full planning permission in January 2017 for the new airbase on land at Outmarsh Farm in Semington. 

This year they have launched an Airbase Appeal to raise the remaining £1.25 million to build and equip the new airbase. As part of Salisbury’s commitment to the local community the Salisbury office have chosen Wiltshire Air Ambulance as their charity this year.
The fundraising initiative is Wilber’s Cash for Clothes Week. For one week Moore will be collecting the following items: 

•    Sheets, duvet covers, pillowcases, towels, belts, hats, clothes, shoes and handbags.  (Not pillows, quilts or duvets).  These can in any condition and will be sent to the Recycling Centre.  
•    Clothes, belts, hats, shoes, handbags, board games, books and ornaments which will be sold in their shops.

Our collection week is the week commencing 15 January during office hours.  (8.30am – 5.00pm Monday to Thursday and 8.30am to 3.00pm on Friday).  However, we will email you in due course as we hope you will be able to make deliveries prior to Christmas.

We hope that through doing this fundraising we will help Wiltshire Air Ambulance hit their target of raising £3.25m a year, this will enable the ambulance service to continue operating a dedicated service.
