The company behind a north Cornish wind farm has pledged a decade of support to Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust.

RWE Innogy UK, which runs Bears Down Wind Farm near St Eval, donates a sum of money each year up until 2025.

For 2014/15, it has presented £8097.45 to Cornwall Air Ambulance – which will go towards funding up to 43 hours of flying.

Overall, the charity anticipates that pledges from Bears Down Wind Farm could be worth around £100k over the coming years.

Head of fundraising, Susie Croft, said: “It’s not often that we have the promise of donations for such a long period of time, so we are extremely grateful to have been chosen to be supported by Bears Down Wind Farm up until 2025.

“The donation this year is a significant one to help us cover the costs of our mission – we can be called out up to five times a day during busy summer months, so it comes at a critically busy time for our aircrew.

“We are always grateful for donations towards general running costs to keep the aircraft flying.”
