The Entertainer urges companies to match its gift to Thames Valley Air Ambulance

Toy retailer The Entertainer has donated £17,000 to Thames Valley Air Ambulance, the charity that provides lifesaving care to people in Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, and Oxfordshire.

The donation will be put towards the purchase of a sophisticated monitoring and defibrillation device to help Thames Valley Air Ambulance’s doctor and paramedic teams take hospital level care to the roadside.

Since this top-of-the-range kit is worth over £34,000, The Entertainer is calling on other businesses to match its funding to enable the charity to make the purchase.

Andy Holland, director of fundraising at Thames Valley Air Ambulance, said:   “As a toy shop, The Entertainer helps people find great gifts for their loved ones. But, this Christmas, they gave our charity a gift that will impact the whole community. By donating an amazing £17,000, The Entertainer have taken us halfway to being able to buy one of the most important pieces of medical equipment our crews carry.”

While Thames Valley Air Ambulance already owns advanced defibrillators, record demand for its services means it now needs more. The charity received over 3,000 call outs and responded to 1,212 cardiac arrests last year.
