Buzzing about our snack bar partnership

Beaconsfield based healthy snack bar company, getbuzzing, has so far raised £4,500, thanks to a generous 1p donation from every bar sold.

With the average cost of a helicopter mission costing £3,325, getbuzzing has set its sights on raising tens of thousands.

The owner and founder of getbuzzing, Kate Wallace, knows how vital Thames Valley Air Ambulance is to the community. In 2008, Kate was involved in a road traffic collision. Although Kate was not injured herself, she saw Thames Valley Air Ambulance in action delivering hospital-level treatment to others involved in the incident.

Kate said: ‘Thames Valley Air Ambulance is a charity that is very close to my heart, having seen their amazing work at a time of need. At getbuzzing we are very excited with this partnership opportunity and are looking forward to making a difference in people’s lives through the money we can raise for this fantastic cause.‘

In addition to donating a portion of snack bar sales to Thames Valley Air Ambulance, Kate and her husband were part of a relay team who swam across the English Channel on 14 September in 12 hours 22 minutes raising over £1,800.

Samantha Collier, Corporate Partnerships Manager, said: ‘This is such an exciting fundraising opportunity for us. It is the first time we have had a partnership where a donation will be made from every sale. The funds raised will help us give patients the best possible chance when the worst happens. We are incredibly grateful for the generous support from getbuzzing.’

The bars are available to buy from Amazon and Waitrose.
