Day two of the Royal Cornwall Show and there is a cash warning from the Cornwall Air Ambulance.

Charity bosses say donations are down.

It is being blamed on the double-dip recession.

Chief Executive Paula Martin is at the Wadebridge ground and tells Pirate FM they have had to put contingency plans in place: "The fundraising team are working really hard to try and make sure that we keep the fundraising levels. Each year we need to raise about 1.7 million pounds at the moment, to fly around a thousand emergency missions and airlift those sick and seriously injured people to hospital.

"We're having to do things to try and put contingency plans in place. We've already opened seven new charity shops, for example, to try and give people a new way to give. It's about thinking about different ways to fundraise that are more appropriate in austere economic times".
