FIELDS of Sidmouth staff have chosen Devon Air Ambulance Trust as their Charity of the Year 2009.
They have adopted a different charity for the past few years.
Last year it was the turn of FORCE, the Exeter-based cancer charity, which benefited by �600 by staff raising funds.
Now DAAT will gain from staff running a variety of money-making events, such as sponsored gift wrapping, a sponsored slim, auction, Easter and Christmas prize draws, cake sale, collecting tins at tills, recycling mobile phones and toner cartridges, and a corporate Christmas card.
Trevor Roberts, Fields manager director said: "Once again staff have nominated a very worthy cause.
"Devon Air Ambulance provides a vital service, not only to residents of the county, but also in times of emergency to some of the many visitors to the area.
