A couple have helped keep the air ambulance flying over the skies of Derbyshire by opening up their garden to the public.

A couple have helped keep the air ambulance flying over the skies of Derbyshire by opening up their garden to the public.

Sue and Charles Smith staged a series of fundraising activities outside their Belper home during the town’s Open Gardens event at the end of June.

They told people about history of their house and its former use as a post office, and served refreshments and set up merchandise stalls and a raffle. Now the pair have handed over £189 which they generated at the event to Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance community representative Richard Fletcher.

Richard said: “Support from people such as Sue and Charles really is invaluable and goes a long way to helping to keep our lifesaving service flying.”
