Blown Away

To celebrate the launch of their new brand, Gillingham & Yeovil based, Octopus Personnel recently held an open day and also marked the occasion by holding a ‘balloon race’ which raised £500 for Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance. The balloon travelling the furthest reached Ipswich in East Anglia, a staggering 238 miles away, earning the winning ‘owner’ and ‘finder’ £200 and £50 respectively.

Director Sandra Smart said:

“The Air Ambulance provides local people with a fantastic service and when we realised it depended largely on charitable donations to keep running, we were determined to do something to demonstrate our gratitude and support.“
