Organisers of a fundraiser held at Fawsley Hall presented a cheque for £3,897 to representatives from the Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance on Friday, November 14.

The fundraising event was hosted by Annabelle Orritt, a 10-year-old who was rescued by the air ambulance after she suffered serious head injuries including a fractured skull, multiple fractures of her eye socket and a broken cheekbone after a 40ft tree fell on her while she was walking home from school with a friend in May.

The air ambulance relies on charitable donations to fund services.

A raffle at the fundraiser offered visitors a chance to win a Porsche driving experience at Silvestone and a full year’s gym membership at Fawsley Hall worth £600.
