£644 Raised for East Anglian Air Ambulance Charity
Last month our Gladwells Pet & Country Store in Copdock opened their car park to people attending the Ed Sheeran concerts in Ipswich. Parking spaces were available in exchange for a donation to the East Anglian Air Ambulance Charity.
We are happy to say that an amazing £644 was raised for the charity!
The event was organised by the Chairman of Copdock Mill, Mark Gladwell and his Grandson Harvey Gladwell. (In association with the Ipswich Rotary Club).
After the weekend of concerts, the team received a number of emails complimenting their efforts:
“Thank you for the parking. Went really smoothly. Parking easy to find, staff very helpful, walk was nice and well lighted on the way back in the dark. Perfect choice for us coming from Colchester.”
“Hi, just to day a big ‘thank you’ to you and your team for offering the parking facility last night. We really appreciated it and hope that lots of money was raised. It was such a great initiative and really helped us. Thank you!”
“Thank you for the use of the car park and all your efficient planning prior to today. Travel to and from home was straightforward and an easy walk. I hope you raised a good sum the East Anglian Air Ambulance.”
“Just a note to say thank you for allowing us to park in your car park, and for all the helpful information you provided. It all worked really well and took the stress out of worrying about parking, and it was a great idea to raise funds for the Air Ambulance. We had a fab time at the concert and wanted to pass our thanks onto you and the volunteers who assisted with parking at your premises.”
We would like to Thank everyone who donated to park at the shop and hope you all enjoyed the very sunny day and concert on the Bank Holiday weekend.
