Cornwall LivingIssue #81

A worthy cause indeed!

If the new near also signifies the beginnings of a ‘new you’, why not take one of Cornwall Air Ambulance’s incredible 2019 challenges?

After the indulgence of Christmas, many of us set ourselves a resolution for the new year. If you’re setting yourself a challenge, why not double up on the good feeling by supporting Cornwall Air Ambulance while you do it? Experience adventure, feel inspired, make memories and most importantly, feel the pride of joining team CAAT to take on one of their exciting new challenges in 2019.

The first five challenge events are in the diary, offering short trips or long challenges in the UK, Europe and even Asia. With different funding options available, you can fundraise the cost of your trip as well as raising vital additional money to help keep Cornwall Air Ambulance flying and saving lives in Cornwall.
