''As a Critical Care Doctor at Great Western Air Ambulance Charity I know that our response to any call that comes through could mean the difference between life and death. But on a very rare occasion there will be a patient so seriously injured that my actions over the course of a minute could make that difference.''
Dr Tim Godfrey, Critical Care Doctor, GWAAC
“Our shops help raise awareness of the charity’s lifesaving work in the communities we serve. They raise much-needed funds to keep the crew flying and to ensure that they can continue to be there for those in need.”
Jason Webster, GWAAC Retail Manager
“There is not a day that has gone by since, where we have not thought of you all. You saved Jasmine’s life, and ours, that day. I very much hope that if life ever throws anything difficult at you that you can think of people like us, who you have saved, made the ultimate difference to, and smile through any of it.”
Niky Crooks, mum of Jasmine
“Thanks to everyone’s actions that day, Logan is alive and well, with no side effects due to the quick response of the paramedics and the specialist skills that only your air ambulance team could bring. I am so thankful to everyone who helped us that day.”
Sue Winter, mum of Logan
“You see them flying around in the sky and kind of imagine that they just pick people up and take them to hospital. That's not the case. That's kind of the secondary. The primary is that the doctors and paramedics take care of you at the scene… I think there are lots of things in life that you're ignorant of until you need them. And I was definitely ignorant of how air ambulances operate.”
Adrian Pearce, patient
“If you’ve got the time and the energy, there are lots of opportunities out there for volunteers. GWAAC wouldn’t run without volunteers; their contribution is greatly needed and appreciated.”
Richard Lewis, GWAAC volunteer
