Rygor Helps to Keep Wiltshire Air Ambulance Flying

By Ben Carey on February 02, 2019

Wiltshire Air Ambulance was just one of several organisations to benefit from Rygor Commercial’s charitable activities during 2018.

The Mercedes-Benz Vans and Trucks Dealership raised £7,500 for good causes via its employee-nominated Charities of the Year scheme which was set up to enable the company’s team members to nominate local charities to support.

In 2018 Rygor was fundraising for Wiltshire Air Ambulance, Camp Mohawk and Shooting Star Chase through a variety of events including a 60-mile bike ride, quiz nights, a showroom cycle challenge, Easter egg donations, cake sales and an inter-branch football tournament.

Tim Stacey, Managing Director of Rygor, said, “It has been extremely rewarding to have been able to focus our fundraising efforts on three incredibly worthwhile charities over the past 12 months. Our team always looks to give back to the local communities which our business calls home and fundraising for local charities is an important way to do this. I would like to say a big well done to all of our team members who got involved in our charity fundraising events throughout 2018.”

Wiltshire Air Ambulance partnerships coordinator Valerie Whistler, said, “We’re very grateful for the support we’ve had from Rygor in the past 12 months. It was great to welcome members of the Rygor team to our airbase in Semington as they kindly passed over their donation of £2,500.”
