Admiral Staff Come to the Rescue

Staff from Admiral's office in Swansea have raised £1,966 for both the Welsh Air Ambulance Service and Brecon Mountain Rescue. Staff in the company's Sales department raised the money through a number of different events including; raffles, name the dog competitions, penalty shoot-outs and a sponsored walk where employees completed the eight mile Brecon Horse-shoe walk. Admiral matched the money raised by staff through its Community Chest Scheme.

This Friday staff from Admiral's Llansamlet office will present a cheque to Nigel Dawson, a team leader from Brecon Mountain Rescue and Mark Stevens, Fundraising Manager from Wales Air Ambulance.

Jade James, from the Sales department explains why they chose these two charities, "It was important for our department to raise money for local charities that have touched our lives or that of someone we know.

"The decision of which charities to support has always been down to what speaks loudest to us and both the Mountain Rescue volunteer team and the Welsh Air Ambulance charity work strongly together to save lives every day. We felt these charities are fundamental in our area and we hope our money raised will go some way to aiding their achievements."
