The Lincolnshire Land Rover Club recently presented a cheque to the Lincolnshire and Nottingham Air Ambulance for £2,160.

Chairwoman of the Land Rover Club, Sue Blackshaw, presented the cheque to air ambulance volunteer Karen Hagyard at the recently-held Brocklesby Country Fair.

The donation included money raised by auctioning an original painting by Pete Wilford and four more limited edition prints.

Mr Wilford has a regular column in several Land Rover publications, and is also well known for his cartoons and paintings.

Money was also raised by the Barrie Murdoch Memorial Trial, which was held in January this year.

Other funds were raised by auctioning another sketch, by club member Ellie Stubbins, and by holding a raffle.

Sue also presented Karen with one of the limited edition prints for the Air Ambulance crew.

The Lincolnshire Land Rover Club thanked everyone who contributed to the fund-raising, achieving such a wonderful amount for a worthy and valuable cause.
