The festive season is a time for gathering with our friends, family and loved ones to celebrate and feast together. Yet over the Christmas period, it’s a sad fact that many people across our region will be involved in a medical emergency or traumatic incident that leaves them fighting for their lives. This Christmas the Great Western Air Ambulance Charity Critical Care Team will be working every single day providing specialist treatment where it's needed most.
Watch the video below to find out more about how you can join in with our #ChristmasMission.
This Christmas our crew of Specialist Paramedics, Pilots and Critical Care Doctors will be working every single day providing potentially life-saving treatment to children and adults across our region. We attend over 5 incidents each day on average, and some days it’s many more. Our specialist crew bring the expertise of an Emergency Department directly to the person where and when they need it most.
This is a vital service, yet many people don’t realise that we’re funded entirely from charitable donations. It’s a hard job, which takes a special kind of person, but we couldn’t do what we do without you.
This festive season we’ll be working hard to keep families together for many more Christmases to come. But we need your help to ensure our crew can go where they’re needed most.
Each one of our missions costs at least £1,750 and could potentially save a life. This means we need to raise £8,750 every single day to keep our service flying.
