Charitable & Cultural Events

The Devon Air Ambulance is a vital part of our community in Devon and we are hugely thankful for the support and organisation of Huntsham Court, and it’s team, who helped host a fantastic fundraising event. Huntsham Court is a wonderful setting to host our fundraising cycle ride and evening reception – it is partnerships like this that enable us and our community to have a thoroughly enjoyable day whilst raising urgent funds needed to keep our helicopters in the air.”
