Travis Perkins has raised over £38,000 for the Northampton and Warwickshire Air Ambulance Service - thanks to the hard work and dedication of fundraising by its colleagues in the IT department.

The 500-strong IT team raised the vital funds, which will help service the lifesaving missions that are carried out by the charity, through a series of challenges and events. This included a dragon boat race and summer ball, in addition to the team completing a sponsored National and Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge.

As part of the charitable work, Travis Perkins also took part in Air Ambulance Week, which included setting up a clothes bank and organising a bake off. Another fundraising triumph saw the IT department hold a Christmas cake sale, which raised a staggering £4,000 in just an hour.

Neil Pearce, group chief information officer at Travis Perkins, said: “We have raised a significant amount of money, which I’m sure will help support the incredible work that the Northampton and Warwickshire Air Ambulance Service do in our local community. I am very proud of the team and look forward to raising more money with them in 2017 to help communities.”

The IT team will continue to support the Northampton and Warwickshire Air Ambulance Service throughout 2017 with activities and events designed to raise even more funds. To support the Travis Perkins team with its fundraising efforts, please visit
