I have been a canvasser for EHAAT for 8 years after working in the energy business. The Lottery has been critical to the Charity's ability to save lives and it is very rewarding to be part of such a tremendous Charity.

Since 2013 it has given me great pleasure and satisfaction working as a Charity canvasser for Essex & Herts Air Ambulance. Explaining and discussing this much needed service with the public makes me very proud to be associated and part of the charities success.
