DVLA staff and partners raise over £21,000 for their 2014 Charity of Choice.

As 2014 comes to a close, the DVLA are proud to announce that through the support and generosity of their staff and partners they’ve raised £21,389 for their Charity of Choice 2014 – The Wales Air Ambulance (WAA).

The money was raised through a variety of activities and events during the year such as the BUPA Great North Run.

DVLA’s Chief Executive Oliver Morley, said: “It’s through the exceptional efforts of everyone here at DVLA that we’ve exceeded our original target of £13,000.”

On hearing the news, Mark Stevens, WAA fundraising manager, said: “All of us here at Wales Air Ambulance were delighted to be chosen as DVLA’s Charity of Choice for 2014. This has really made a difference and we will use the funds to buy a scanning machine for our helicopter based in Swansea. It has been a fun and memorable time with DVLA over the year and from everyone at WAA, we would like to thank all the staff at DVLA who supported us.”

Oliver added: “It’s important that we continue to focus on charities that really mean something to staff and we will be announcing our Charity of Choice for 2015 shortly.”
