Great Yarmouth-based Perenco has presented the East Anglian Air Ambulance's fundraising coordinator for Suffolk, Nicky Wright, with a brand new Astra van.

The company's gesture ensures that Nicky has the transport she needs to get herself and the merchandise and equipment she carries to the many fundraising engagements she attends on the charity's behalf across the county.

Perenco is one of the world's leading oil and natural gas exploration and production companies.

Typically, fundraisers for the East Anglian Air Ambulance, which provides a 365 day air ambulance service across the region, notch up around 20,000 miles a year travelling to and from the many engagements, talks and events held in support of the charity.

The East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) operates a 365 day life-saving service across Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Suffolk. It is entirely dependent on fund-raising and contributions from members of the public as it receives no government or National Lottery funding. It costs £3m per year to keep the charity's two air ambulances flying, to provide the required ancilliary operations and to supply the advanced clinical equipment they carry.
