Cambridge airport presents an alternative Christmas card


Cambridge Airport presented an alternative Christmas card this year. Instead of distributing the usual client cards, the airport chose to donate a cheque for £200 to the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) unit which is based at the airport.

“The airport has a long standing relationship with the EAAA and we are sure friends of the airport will appreciate our alternative seasonal gesture.. We are delighted to contribute to such an invaluable service,” said Holloway, Deputy Chairman of Cambridge Airport”
