Aqua Park Rutland is pledging to support the Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance as its chosen charity for 2017.

The UK’s largest water sports challenge, located at Rutland Water, will be offering a donation to the Air Ambulance charity at the end of its 2017 season, which is running from Saturday, May 27 to Saturday, September 23.

Richard Drinkwater, co-founder of Aqua Park Rutland, said: “We couldn’t be happier to support the Derbyshire, Leicester and Rutland Air Ambulance with a charitable donation. The Air Ambulance do great work in the region and we hope to make a significant donation to help them continue services in the local area.”

Collette Richardson, fundraiser manager for Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland, said: “We’re delighted to be supported by Aqua Park Rutland for the second year in a row. As we receive no government funding, donations like this are absolutely vital to keep our lifesaving service in the air.”
