RUGBY World Cup winner, Phil Vickery, has teamed up with Midlands Air Ambulance to help raise funds for their life-saving service.
The England rugby legend was announced as one of the service’s charity ambassadors at their Strensham airbase last Wednesday (August 6).
He brought his clothing brand, Raging Bull Sportswear, to the charity to help them drive greater clothing sales. Air crews will also wear the range as part of their new uniform, under their flight suits.
Vickery, who was a part-time forwards coach at Worcester Warriors last season, said: “I am thrilled to be working with Midlands Air Ambulance charity, both with the clothing partnership and personally as an ambassador.
“Throughout my career I have been acutely aware of the potentially life-threatening injuries that can take place on the pitch, so I am keen to help raise awareness of this incredibly vital emergency service.”
Jason Levy, fund-raising and marketing director for the charity, added: “Ever since our initial meeting with Phil Vickery and the team at Raging Bull Sportswear it was immediately apparent there is terrific synergy between our two organisation.
“Raging Bull Sportswear is a rugby heritage clothing brand and on average we airlift people with sporting injuries every three days, a great proportion of which relate to rugby accidents.”
