Daventry, UK, 8th November 2018 – Premium tyre manufacturer Hankook is proud to announce the continuation of their support to the Air Ambulance Rapid Response Cars into 2019. The partnership between leading tyre manufacturer Hankook Tyre UK and the Air Ambulance began in 2017, when the first set of tyres were donated. Since then, Hankook Tyre UK have also arranged multiple fundraisers, both internally and during popular company events, and have made the Air Ambulance their dedicated charity of choice.
The Air Ambulance is a charity funded solely by public donations. During daylight hours, two helicopters are flown across five counties, including Northamptonshire, Warwickshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland. When the darkness of night sets in, the Rapid Response Critical Care Cars are relied upon to take over; making it imperative that the vehicles are fitted with robust, quality tyres that are able to cope with the high speed, and occasional off road, journeys.
To date, Hankook have been able to provide 24 tyres to the Air Ambulance for their Critical Care Cars. The contribution Hankook have provided so far has enabled the charity to continually save lives around the community, with peace of mind that all teams are travelling on safe, reliable tyres. As a company who are passionate about supporting local communities, Hankook are honoured to support a charity which provides life-saving, emergency services to those in the surrounding counties.
Hankook are looking forward to further supporting the Air Ambulance in 2019. Alongside donating any tyres required by the Air Ambulance, Hankook strive to raise more monetary donations in 2019 than ever before. Without crucial public donations, the charity would not be able to sustain its invaluable services.
National Partnerships Manager, Jo Payne said, “We are so delighted to have received the very generous donations from Hankook for our Rapid Response cars, which are a very important part of our response to the community we serve. Having the tyres to hand proved very well timely with a recent puncture. We were able to fit a new tyre and were back on the road in under 30 mins. Gifts in Kind are a great way to help our charity, save the charity vital funds with each mission coasting on average £1, 700.00 and we look forward to working Hankook again in the future.”
