Over 45 key customers and suppliers recently helped Ridgeons’ Norwich branch to raise £600 in aid of the East Anglian Air Ambulance – the Ridgeon Group’s chosen charity for 2013.

Organised by the branch to thank a number of valued customers for their continued support, the special celebration event included a host of activities such as special deals, a hog roast and demonstrations from suppliers Rixonway Kitchens, Ecotherm, Jeldwen windows and doors, Keystone Group, Keylite Roof Windows, Toolbank, Dale Hardware, Stonemarket, Marshalls, Knauf Insulation, Symphony and Garador.

The East Anglian Air Ambulance was on hand with its promotional vehicle, engaging with guests to showcase the valuable efforts that the charity undertakes within the region. There was also a raffle, with prizes of wine, champagne, a Landman Gas BBQ and £100-worth of Tesco vouchers.

Norwich branch manager Tim Wigby said: “I’d like to say a great big thank you to all our customers and suppliers who took the time to get involved with our open event. It was a brilliant evening and we raised a respectable £600 for one of the region’s worthiest causes, the East Anglian Air Ambulance. It’s not often that we get the opportunity to officially say thank you to our customers, and this event gave us the chance to do just that.”
