Residents of

Roseland Parc retirement village took a trip to the newly-built headquarters of

the Cornwall Air Ambulance service to present them with a cheque for £700.


The cash was

raised at the Christmas fair, an annual event at the age-exclusive village in

Tregony, near Truro. A range of craft stalls, home-made cakes and a tombola,

manned by staff and residents helped to boost the total.



have been long-term supporters of the Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust which has

been serving the county for 25 years. They were invited to visit the Trust's

headquarters at Newquay Airport to hand over the cheque and see, first hand,

the work that is done.



Parc resident Elizabeth Sharratt said: "There's no question that every penny

raised for the Air Ambulance counts towards saving precious lives. The

helicopter was called out to an emergency three times in the hour we were

there, which showed us more than anything the importance of the work these

brave men and women do."
