As 2014 comes to a close, we’re proud to announce that through the support and generosity of DVLA staff and our partners, we’ve raised £21,389 for our Charity of Choice 2014 - The Wales Air Ambulance (WAA).

The money was raised through a variety of activities and events during the year.

DVLA’s Chief Executive Oliver Morley, said:

It’s through the exceptional efforts of everyone here at DVLA that we’ve exceeded our original target of £13,000.

On hearing the news, Mark Stevens, WAA fundraising manager, said:

All of us here at Wales Air Ambulance were delighted to be chosen as DVLA’s Charity of Choice for 2014. This has really made a difference and we will use the funds to buy a scanning machine for our helicopter based in Swansea. It has been a fun and memorable time with DVLA over the year and from everyone at WAA, we would like to thank all the staff at DVLA who supported us.

Oliver added:

It’s important that we continue to focus on charities that really mean something to staff and we will be announcing our Charity of Choice for 2015 shortly.
