An unconventional Bexleyheath business is putting on a fun day to raise money for Kent, Sussex and Surrey Air Ambulance.

Xtreme Vortex, owned by partners Andy Green and Donna Dowling, organises inflatable activities such as laser tag, rock climbing and a bungee run.

These will be among the activities available to try out on the day along with side stalls and a human table football tournament.

The business was nominated for two Bexley Business Awards earlier this year and also won the chance to meet Dragons’ Den star Theo Paphitis after winning a competition on social networking site Twitter.

Donna said: “We’re trying to raise at least £3,000 on the day but it would be great if we could raise so much more than this.

“The amount of fundraising they need is huge and they do such great work so every little helps.

“All the proceeds raised from the fun day are being donated to the cause and we are donating our time and activities to raise the money.”

There is no charge to get in to the event but it costs to take part in the individual activities, which will range between £1 and £3.

It takes place at Bexleyheath Academy in Woolwich Road on Sunday, April 28.

It runs from noon to 4pm, visit for more information.
