Jason Levy, fundraising and marketing director for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, said: "Ever since our initial meeting with Phil Vickery and the team at Raging Bull Sportswear it was immediately apparent that there is terrific synergy between our two organisations.
"Raging Bull Sportswear is a rugby heritage clothing brand and on average we airlift people with sporting injuries every three days, a great proportion of which relate to rugby accidents."

The rugby legend said: "I am thrilled to be working with Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, both with the clothing partnership and personally as an ambassador. Throughout my career I have been acutely aware of the potentially life-threatening injuries that can take place on the pitch, so I am keen to help raise awareness of this incredibly vital emergency service."
