Andy Craig, 58, the licensee of the restaurant, told the Mail one member of staff raised £245 for the collection.

He said: “There was 11 of us who took part.

“Obviously the air ambulance is a really important charity because it saves lives.

“We all know people in the village who have needed to use it.

“It’s a life-line and if the public don’t donate to them then the helicopters would not fly so it’s reliant on donations.”
