Bus company’s cheque for charity chopper!

National Express Dundee has presented a cheque for £250 to Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance.

The donation is a result of a successful application to National Express’s Employee Charity Panel, which distributes funds to causes and organisations which are supported by members of staff. Cash Office Supervisor Bruce Rumgay requested the money on behalf of SCAA, as he is the company’s liaison with the charity.

Bruce said: “I help to raise funds for SCAA in our workplace – not only that but my son, Bruce, is one of the team’s paramedics and has been involved in many of the Helimed’s 271 call-outs so far. I’m really pleased with the contribution the company is making towards such a vital service for people in Scotland.”

Gavin Davey, SCAA Chief Executive said: “I want to thank National Express for this donation, which will help us to keep flying over Scotland and continue our life-saving work. Both SCAA and National Express work closely with the local community in Dundee, Angus, Fife and the surrounding areas, so I welcome the partnership we’ve established and look forward to working together in the future.”
