In Memoriam: Len Dobson 1935-2020

David Dobson posted an update on 4th June 2020


Thank you all so very much for the generous donations, we have smashed through the initial target.

I just wanted to add something to put the amount raised into context for the Air Ambulance Service. So far in 2020 they had handled more than 1000 missions, and on average 1 mission costs £1700. This means that the amount we have raised (including estimated gift aid) as I type this update is about two thirds of the cost for one mission.

Unfortunately I am unable to increase the initial target - to match the average mission cost. However, I am really pleased with the fact that your contributions have achieved the majority of a mission cost, and I know there are a few more donations yet to be made. Perhaps we will make the average mission cost.

Thank you all again.

In Memory of Len Dobson - a good and lovely man. A beloved husband, father, granddad and friend, he is missed by so many.

Due to current restrictions we would like to suggest that those that may have wished to have sent flowers could donate to the Midlands Air Ambulance Service instead.

Anything you can contribute towards helping achieve our target will be massively appreciated. 

Thank you.
