“We’re really excited to be hosting our first children’s Christmas party,” said Emma Carter, Head of Fundraising. “This will be a lovely opportunity for the children we have treated and their families to meet the crew and have a look at our new air base. We’d love to connect with even more of the children whose lives we have saved, and so are urging parents to get in touch if we have attended to your child”.

GWAAC provide the air ambulance and critical care service across Bristol, Bath & North East Somerset, North Somerset, Gloucestershire, South Gloucestershire and surrounding areas.

So far this year they have attended 1,560 incidents by their helicopter or one of their critical care cars, bringing the expertise of their crew of Critical Care Doctors and Paramedics, along with specialist equipment not carried on a land ambulance, directly to the patient.
