Shoppers at Tesco in Guildford raised more than £3,000 last week for the Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance in a raffle.

The Air Ambulance is regularly seen attending incidents in and around Guildford, taking casualties quickly to the most appropriate hospital for the injuries sustained.

A grand total of £3,044.70 was raised in ticket sales and donations for the “Win a Mini” draw in aid of the Redhill-based air ambulance which relies almost entirely on public support.

Tickets for the raffle cost £5 each and can be purchased online at and the draw will take place on March 31st, 2017, making it a perfect present for the summer months. The prize is a Mini Cooper worth £19,000.

Lottery Manager James Cook said: “We are really grateful to Tesco in Guildford for allowing us to promote the Win a Mini raffle at their store, a new venue for us, and to the public for their support.”
