We were delighted to be able to hand over a cheque to the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance for £2,305 and a big THANK YOU goes out to you, our lovely guests for contributing to this amazing figure by choosing to make a donation when booking your holiday through us.
We never know when we might need the services of an Air Ambulance: they literally take the hospital to the patient with a critical care doctor and a critical care practitioner on board each ‘mission’. The Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance crew can reach patients in either county in less than 20 minutes and are tasked as part of the normal 999 emergency process.
This quick response gives great comfort to locals and visitors alike but what you may not know is that it is a registered charity, receives no governmental or National Lottery funding and the cost per mission is approx. £3,000. With call outs costing millions per year they have set up their own lottery and also very much welcome local donations.
So thank you once again for your generosity and we look forward to continuing our support for this vital service.
