Tony Cannon, Devon Air Ambulance TrustTony volunteers for the Devon Air Ambulance, one of our chosen charities. In his own words…

Since retiring from the hospitality industry over 3 years ago, I have been volunteering for the Devon Air Ambulance Trust. In this role, I attend events such as agricultural shows, give talks to local organisations including schools and also look after some of the red collection boxes in the Ivybridge area.

I am originally from London but have lived in the South West for over 25 years. My mother’s family originate from Plymouth and she was brought up in Meavy, so I like to think I qualify as a ‘half-local’!

I thoroughly enjoy meeting a variety of people in the community and telling them about the vital service that the Devon Air Ambulance provides. Whilst we all hope we won’t have to use the service, it is very reassuring to know that it is available.
