Hotel helps keep ambulance aloft


Guests at a Rye hotel have helped to donate more than £1,000 to Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance. The George in Rye has introduced a scheme in which overnight guests are asked to pledge £1 to one of two chosen charities when they check out. The hotel matches the donations. A total of £1,100 was raised for the air ambulance last year, following £1,316 in 2013. Each callout of the helicopter costs about £2,500. Alex Clarke, director at The George, said: “We are delighted to continue to support the great work that the air ambulance does and we are all so lucky to have them looking out for us in our daily lives.” To donate to the charity, visit its website.
