Generous customers and staff at a Nisa store in Ceredigion have been thanked by the Wales Air Ambulance after they raised £1,000 for the Charity. 

The store in Bow Street made the donation as part of ‘Making a Difference Locally’ (MADL) - a charity launched to help independently run local Nisa stores.

The money is raised through the sale of certain products, including all of Nisa’s own-label heritage range. Every time an item included in the scheme is purchased, a proportion of the price is added to the store’s MADL fund and this is then donated to good causes in that store’s local area.

Mark Stevens, Wales Air Ambulance Mid and South Wales Fundraising Manager, said:  “A huge thank you to the staff and customers at Nisa in Bow Street for rising to the challenge and having a very successful year of fundraising.  

“We are very grateful to all at Nisa for the ongoing support that they give to Wales Air Ambulance, and to the generosity of the public who donated. The money raised will be essential to keep our helicopters flying. Thank you.”

There are several ways that the public can continue to support the Wales Air Ambulance. These include online donations, signing up to the Charity’s Lifesaving Lottery or by coming up with their own innovative ways to fundraise at home.
