Celebrating our Supporters

Providing urgent critical care to our communities is only possible because of the support we are given, from the people who live in those communities. People like those below. Every bake sale, sponsored challenge or donation enables us to be there for those who need us the most.

GWAAC’s supporters

Chris Handscomb

After our crew attended to one of Chris's friends, Jasmine, he was inspired to raise vital funds for GWAAC. For one whole month, Chris cycled 5k and walked 5k each day! No rest days and 396.44km later Chris successfully completed the challenge and raised £190 for us. Huge thank you from us all here at GWAAC.
Nick Tindal

Penny Meredith

‘’I can't give him a hug or a card, but I can pay tribute to his memory by raising money to help the Air Ambulance teams help others in their time of need.’’ After Penny tragically lost her dad in 2015, she decided to shave her head and raise funds for one of the emergency service crews that desperately tried to save him. In total Penny has fantastically raised £585.00

Jim Hannis

Jim’s County around the County challenge! Gloucestershire farmer Jim set himself a rather unusual challenge to raise funds for GWAAC… Jim drove his 1970 Ford County Tractor around Gloucestershire keeping as close to the border as possible. That’s 350 miles with 220 road junctions! Amazingly Jim has raised over £5000 – enough for two lifesaving missions.
