Kwik Fit, the UK’s leading automotive servicing and repair company has announced that it has chosen Air Ambulances UK (AAUK) as its national charity partner. The support of Kwik Fit as a national partner will help raise awareness of the vital work of the air ambulance services across the UK, while enabling funds to be raised for staff and customers’ local air ambulance charities.
Air Ambulances UK is a national organisation which champions and supports the lifesaving work of the UK’s 21 air ambulance charities. Through Air Ambulances UK, Kwik Fit will raise funds for all those 21 regional charities, as well as help increase local and national awareness of their essential missions.
Kwik Fit’s customers will be able to make donations to Air Ambulances UK in more than 600 Kwik Fit centres across the country, as well as when making a purchase online at kwik-fit.com. Kwik Fit staff will be carrying out a range of fund-raising activities over the coming year, supporting the national campaign as well as the local air ambulance charity which serves their own community.
At this month’s launch, Simmy Akhtar, CEO of Air Ambulances UK said, “With each mission costing, on average, nearly £4,000 the national support from Kwik Fit will make a significant difference to the capabilities of all the air ambulance charities and help save even more lives.”
