Hitting the Jackpot - Colin’s Story

Colin signed up to the GWAAC lottery in Cheltenham, he felt that we were a very important cause and has heard about the importance of fast response times from one of his daughters who is finishing her training to become a paramedic. Colin told us that he hadn't won anything in 65 years so this was a pleasant surprise especially as it came one week before a holiday in Cornwall. When we spoke to Colin he said “If you moved to a contributing area what could be more worthwhile than donating to your local air ambulance. I’m proud to play the GWAAC lottery because in a small way I am helping fund a highly valuable service which in the end will save someone's life!"
