MORE than 200 friends, family and staff at Pembridge’s Kingspan Insulation helped raise £1,000 for Midlands Air Ambulance last month.

The company’s family open day featured a variety of stalls and games, a busy bar and a barbecue.

Kingspan's Susan Ewart said: “Our people chose the charity to support and they worked extraordinarily hard to raise this amount of cash. We’re delighted to be associated with the regional Air Ambulance in such a positive way.”

The open day raised a total of £1,072 and presented the cheque to Midlands Air Ambulance's Susie Goodwin.
