Isle of Wight Health and Safety Group Donate Over £4,500 to the Air Ambulance

The Group, which recently disbanded having protected workers' rights for 44 years, decided that all remaining funds should be donated to HIOWWA.  Roger Kevern commented "The majority of our members felt that it made sense to donate our remaining funds to HIOWAA because the Charity's Critical Care Teams respond to serious accidents at work and their intervention can make the difference between life and death."

This generous donation was gratefully acknowledged by the Charity in a letter to the Group - HIOWAA letter
