ELDC chair raises £1,000 for cause

FORMER chairman of East Lindsey District Council, councillor Dick Edginton has raised nearly £1,000 for the Air Ambulance during his year in office.

The Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance saves hundreds of lives each year and receives no government or national funding.

The money was raised through numerous donations, social evenings organised by the chairman and through collection.

Coun Edginton said: “The Air Ambulance is important to our local area and I’d like to thank all those who supported my chosen charity during my year of office.”
