A NIGHT of fun and fireworks in Rugby has helped raise enough money for a potentially life-saving air ambulance mission.

The Bonfire and Fireworks Extravaganza took place at Brownsover Hall on November 4.

It raised more than £1,500 for the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance.

Organisers said the firework display, provided by Ben Morley-Mackay of Halo FX and supported by the Rugby Round Table was “spectacular”.

Alan Moxon, Manager of Brownsover Hall, said: “The event sold out with 300 guests attending, which was brilliant.

“Everyone said how much they enjoyed the fireworks. The night went fabulously well with capacity attendance, a clear night sky, mild temperatures and no rain.”

Alan said the highlight was the breathtaking firework display.

“We wanted to do something to help a local charity,” he added.

“The air ambulance relies uniquely on fundraising, a great cause which saves lives in situations when time is of the essence.”

He said Brownsover Hall will look to other opportunities to raise money for local charitable causes and will make Bonfire night a tradition to look forward to,

“You never know when you might need the air ambulance,” added Alan.

“They do a fantastic job.”

Jo Payne, fundraising manager at WNAA said: “I am delighted to hear that Brownsover Hall have raised such a wonderful sum.

“I would like to say thank you for helping us today so we can keep saving lives tomorrow.”

She added: “The money raised will pay for a life-saving mission which is absolutely brilliant.”
