A CHARD man who is the chief officer for The Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffaloes has raised an impressive amount of money for Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance.

Bro Derek White, the Provincial Grand Primo, of the Excelsior Lodge in Chard, raised £2278.50 during his year in office from various functions, raffles and donations.

The total also included £363 which presented to the Province by the family of the late Bro Geoff Prince.
