GMS Lions presented a cheque to Wiltshire Air Ambulance.

Thank you for everyone that came to our race night for us to be able to make this donation to this very vital service.

Wiltshire Air Ambulance Charitable Trust is a registered charity providing an essential Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) in Wiltshire, Bath and surrounding areas.

We began operating in 1990 and the helicopter and crew have saved countless lives. The charity shared a helicopter with Wiltshire Police for 24 years, but began operating as a stand-alone air ambulance from 2015 using a Bell 429 helicopter.

It costs £4.5 million a year to keep the lifesaving service operational, which equates to more than £12,000 per day.

The charity receives no regular direct funding from the Government or National Lottery grants, so relies on the generous donations from the public and local businesses to raise the vital funds needed.
