DREAMLAND Bedding Centre in Brierley Hill has raised a whopping £2,500 for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity (MAAC), funding one of its rapid response, lifesaving air ambulance missions.

The staff at Dreamland Bedding Centre usually hold an annual get-together around the festive season to raise funds for MAAC, but due to Covid restrictions it was cancelled.

Mike Brown, owner of Dreamland Bedding Centre, got creative and decided to send invitations out to a raffle in aid of the lifesaving charity as an alternative.

The team were inundated with RSVPs, which included monies for the raffle tickets and donations.

Alison Hill, volunteer manager for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity said: "With no Government or NHS Charities Together funding, we’re so grateful to local businesses like Dreamland Bedding who have continued to show us their support and helping us make future lifesaving missions possible.

"Thanks also go to everyone who took part in the raffle and donated to support our vitally important service.”
