DEVON Air Ambulance will receive a £1,000 boost from Sidmouth Waitrose workers.
Store partners were given £5 apiece and each decided to donate cash to the lifesaving cause.
Devon Air Ambulance Trust volunteer co-ordinator Debbie Collingwood, who lives in Temple Street, Sidmouth, was invited along to accept the cheque.
She said: “We’re really grateful. Keeping Devon’s two air ambulances flying costs in the region of £4.5 million per year.
“It’s entirely down to the generosity of the businesses and fundraising initiatives throughout the community that we can continue our work. ”
Shoppers at Stowford Rise’s Waitrose store could bag a brand new car next Friday, August 12, when staff from Devon Air Ambulance Trust will sell tickets (£1) for their grand summer draw.
The winner will be revealed on Sunday, September 18.
