Air Ambulance launches anniversary raffle for £15,000 car


Life-saving charity Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance has celebrated its silver jubilee by launching a raffle in which the top prize is a car worth £15,000.

The red 1.2 Mini One three-door hatchback was donated by Barretts of Canterbury and boasts tyre pressure monitoring, a Thatcham 1 alarm system, ISOFIX child seat system, front foglights, on-board computer, DAB digital radio and Bluetooth hands-free function with USB radio.

The car will go on show at shopping centres and community events throughout the counties before the grand draw on December 15.

The air ambulance has helped thousands of people and saved many lives after attending more than 25,000 call-outs over the last quarter of a century.

Air Ambulance Head of Promotions Katie Eeles said: “The service we provide today would simply not be possible without the kind support of the public.

“The need for our life-saving service will never go away, and your support will help to ensure that we can continue helping patients who need us for many years to come.”

Tickets for the Win A Mini raffle cost £5 each and can be purchased online at
