Dear John
Thank you for the generous donation of £40.00 that we received from lan Hunt following the talk he did for you at the Budleigh Salterton Probus Club.
You have helped us to save a life, and for that we would like to say a huge thank you!
This year we celebrate 25 years of service, and it is with huge thanks for the fantastic support we receive from people like you that we are able to continue.
ln November 20L6 we extended our service to operate until midnight and we are continuing to invest further in the clinical development of our aircrew, giving them the skills needed when faced with the most severe medical emergencies. Ln addition we are continuing to support our communities to develop their own night landing sites across the county which they will fund and manage themselves.
We have lots of exciting events coming up this year and we would love to keep in touch with you about these activities and developments by sending you our Helipad Magazine which is published three times a year and includes details of airlifts, events, staff and supporter stories, so unless we hear from you to the contrary we will retain your details on our database; please be assured that we never pass these details to any third party.
You can also keep up to date with all the exciting events happening in your area in support of Devon Air Ambulance by following us on Facebook, Twitter and lnstagram.
We would like to thank you once again for your support which is immensely appreciated.
Yours sincerely
Catherine Walker

Dear Friends,
Thank you for your gift of £135.25 (excluding merchandise sales), received from a recent speaking engagement, to help Mercy Ships deliver hope and healing to some of the world's poorest people.
With your compassionate response, we're moving forward with hundreds of surgeries in Africa - operations that will give new life to people who have suffered greatly until now.
Some have disfiguring tumours on their faces. Some can't smile because of a cleft lip and palate. Some are scarred from severe burns incurred in their childhood. And in many cases, because society has completely rejected them for their disfigurements, some have spent years in virtual hiding.
But now, these completely treatable conditions are being corrected through your support of our doctors and nurses. This means people can start life over! It couldn't happen unless Mercy Ships brought the opportunity to them through your generosity.
So I thank you again for your wonderful expression of compassion. Yours sincerely,

LEA MILLIGAN Executive Director

I have received an email from Hospiscare:

The recent kind donation of £30 from the Budleigh Salterton Probus Club is so appreciated, please do pass on our thanks.

Your generosity is already helping local people.  Every day our nurses are caring for over 700 patients across Exeter, mid and east Devon when they need it most.  Hospiscare’s unique service is a lifeline for many and we are so grateful to you for your support, helping us keep on doing what we do best....making a difference.

The crucial role we play is perhaps best expressed by one of our patients:

“Having Hospiscare close at hand, with regular visits and never more than a phone call away is like someone holding my hand, just when I need it”

From our team of nurses, doctors, support staff, volunteers and, most of all, the patients and families we care for, thank you.
