Go Red week raises £7,000 for Herts Air Ambulance
Hundreds of people helped raise over £7,000 for the Herts Air Ambulance during a charity week.
Mayor Pat Strack finished tallying up the total amount raised during Go Red week yesterday.
The week, held at the end of September, saw businesses and schools across the borough hold coffee mornings, football games and an exercise marathon to help raise cash for the cause.
Mayor Strack said: “I just want to say a massive thank you to everyone who helped make Go Red week a huge success.
“I am over the moon we have collected £7,000 so far, particularly given how tough times are.
“People are still collecting money too – it’s all trundling on.
“My whole year is dedicated to collecting cash for Hertfordshire Air Ambulance, so we have a number events still to come.”
