A mum-of-two has given the Essex and Herts Air Ambulance coffers a boost with help from her children's primary school.
Sarah White, 43, has been raising money as a thank you for the help she received when she was badly injured in a horse riding accident.
Mrs White had been taking part in a charity ride at Hatfield House when she was hurt a few years ago.
She was airlifted to Lister Hospital in Stevenage and had to have surgery on her left leg with rods and screws inserted.
For her birthday in May, she asked for donations rather than presents and was “quite shocked” to receive £900 for the air ambulance.
Brookmans Park School also supported her fundraising efforts with a red and yellow day and a cake sale, generating just over £550.
Welham Green resident Mrs White, who is mum to 10-year-old Jack and eight-year-old May, said: “The school have school have been very supportive.
“I would like to say a massive thank you to headteacher Mrs Davies for allowing us to run the campaign.
“My mission is to raise enough money to pay for someone else’s mission [air ambulance flight].”
