9th December- Flying Trees.
A Catsfield Christmas tree farmer is raising funds for the air ambulance after he was airlifted by the charity helicopter 25 years ago. Clive Collins, of Catsfield Christmas Tree Farm, is donating 10p from every tree sold to Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance after one of its pilots bought a tree today (Monday, November 30). The 54-year-old was working as a forestry contractor when he fell 30ft from a tree and broke his back in 1990. He was airlifted to the Conquest Hospital and left paralysed from the waist down but was able to launch his new business with the aid of a specially adapted tractor.
