Wiltshire Air Ambulance - Cheque Presentation - Awdry Bailey & Douglas

Wiltshire Air Ambulance – is the only air ambulance that flies both day and night. Its mission is to airlift critically ill and injured people to hospital – a life saver…

ABD’s annual Christmas party event was a great success but more than just a party last year. Some of the staff decided to get together and run an auction! 

The auction consisted of cakes, car washes, hair gel, doggy day care and a painting all very kindly provided by ABD staff.

After bidding took place a fantastic £765 was raised which went to Wiltshire Air Ambulance.
