The Daventry Dolphins Swimming Club (DDSC) have presented the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance (WNAA) with a cheque for £150 after one of their members needed WNAA assitence last September.
Kian Saville, 12, suffered several epileptic seizuers and needed the WNAA to airlift him to Coventry Walsgrave Hospital for urgent medical treatment.
Kian and his family, together with representatives of the DDSC, visited the base of the WNAA at Baginton Airport in Coventry to meet the paramedic who rescued him and to present him with the cheque.
The club had raised the money with a raffle as part of their 50th anniversary celebrations attended by nearly 200 past and present members at the Daventry Working Men’s Club.
“We felt the WNAA was a valuable service that really needed the money,” said Lesley Sharp, Secretary and President of the DDSC.
“If it hadn’t been for them things could have been a lot worse.”
Kian continues to train and compete with the dolphins who are looking ahead to their next fundraising event in October.
