The contribution to the charity came from proceeds of the club’s fund-raising tower run in May.
The club’s Jennie Warren (with help from her son Michael) handed it over to paramedics at the air ambulance’s Strensham base.
Club chairman Neil Hall said: “We were pleased to be able to share some of the proceeds from our successful tower run with a good cause like the air ambulance.”
The Midlands Air Ambulance is the charity responsible for funding and operating three air ambulances serving the communities of six Midlands counties: Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Worcestershire and the West Midlands.
It receives no government or National Lottery funding. Each Midlands mission costs £2,500 and more than £7 million is needed each year to keep its three aircraft operational. The sum is donated entirely by the public and local businesses.
Bredon Cricket Run Tower Run 2018 will be on Sunday, May 27.
And here is a brief review of what people have been saying about their day at Hill Close:
Such a great day! That route was amazing, tough but so beautiful. The entertainment after was perfect and the kids loved the bouncy castle… and I came away with a trophy ?????? Anna Midgley

We just wanted to say what an amazing morning we had at Bredon! Thoroughly enjoyed it (especially the downhill!) and we’ll spread the word and be back next year. Kevin and Isobel McDowell
A massive well done and thank you to all who organised the first tower run. A great course and an even better social after. Roll on next year ??? Darren Gamble
A big thanks to everyone who organised and marshalled the Bredon Cricket Club Tower run today. I really enjoyed it hope to see you next year with a few more members from Kenilworth runners. Thank you, enjoy the bank holiday. Gail Bates
Travelled up from Cornwall for this event. Stayed with friends in Alderton. What a great run. Can’t believe it was the first time. It was so well organized, hats off to the team who put it together. A tough but excellent course. Would make a great winter headtorch race. Paul Gwynne
I’ve just about recovered from your run. Thank you for such a well organised event. See you next year ? David Jones
Let’s face it. If it was easy you wouldn’t get that fabulous feeling of achievement afterwards. It entails a 299m climb, but you will feel much greater satisfaction at completing the run than from a flat 10k. And remember you don’t have to break any records. Take your time, walk if you need to, and just enjoy an amazing running experience.
2. The views are breathtaking
Few people reach the top of Bredon Hill and are disappointed by what they find there. The iconic 18th-century tower (Parson’s Folly) and the atmospheric Iron Age fort are fascinating in themselves, but the biggest treat lies in the sweeping views across the Vale of Evesham, south to the Cotswold Hills and west to the Malverns. It is countryside that inspired the poetry of A E Housman, and it is simply breathtaking.
3. The entertainment is terrific
Completing the tower run isn’t the end of your day at Bredon; we are laying on a big party for all our runners. There will be a barbecue and cake stall, and Americana music from the Malvern Hillbillies band. Our fully licensed bar will be open, and there will be a bouncy castle for younger children. Our cricket ground at the foot of Bredon Hill is the perfect place for friends and families to watch the runners cross the finish line and help them celebrate their achievement.
4. It’s a bargain
Entry to the tower run costs just £10. That compares extremely well with other trail runs of similar length. Parking is free too, and there is no charge for guests who simply want to enjoy the hospitality and music at our picturesque cricket ground and soak up the atmosphere of the run.
5. It’s so good for you
Trail running works your muscles, tendons and ligaments differently than running on the road or treadmill. And running trails uphill or down not only builds your cardiovascular engine, it strengthens quads, glutes, calves, and core, according to Men’s Fitness. Tackling the tower run will also improve your balance and proprioception (your body’s ability to know where it is in space), a benefit that carries over into all the other sports and activities you do.
6. You’ll be helping two very good causes
We are not asking people who enter the tower run to seek sponsorship, but their entry fees will go towards what we think are two very good causes. One is the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity. It receives no government or National Lottery funding, and more than £7 million is needed each year to keep its three air ambulances operational. The other beneficiary of your entrance fee is us, Bredon Cricket Club. We are a community asset, and we field three adult teams and several junior teams in local leagues. We are proud of our record of introducing scores of youngsters to the national game of the English summer.
