Edinburgh Airport is looking for a new charity partner.

Applications to become the airport’s Corporate Charity of the Year for 2019 are now being accepted.

The airport is working with Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance (SCAA) as its 2018 partner to raise funds and awareness of the group.

Competition for the title is sure to be high, with more than 40 applications received for this year's partnership.

The airport works with a different charity every year and donated more than £65,000 to 2017’s charity Children 1st, with a similar total expected to be raised for SCAA by the end of the year.

Anna Light, head of engagement at Edinburgh Airport, said: “Working with and promoting the good work of charities is something we are passionate about at Edinburgh Airport as there are so many groups out there making a real difference to people’s lives.

“Our associations with our corporate charities have reaped rewards for both of us and our staff are so enthusiastic to get involved and do their bit.

“We’ve really enjoyed working with SCAA this year and learning about the support they provide all over Scotland. They provide such a vital service that it’s been a honour partnering with them. We look forward to receiving the applications and involving the team in selecting a new charity partner for next year.”
