Charity and Community

As a business we think it’s really important to play an active role in our local community and give something back. We are committed to making a positive impact in the area around us, and are proud to have supported a number of local groups and charitable organisations, as detailed below.

Charity of the Year 2018/19

As a business we strongly believe in supporting the community and fundraising for local causes, and as such we are pleased to announce our chosen charity for 2018/19 is Great Western Air Ambulance Charity (GWAAC), and not only will we be making a cash donation to the cause every month, but we are also looking at other ways that we can support them such as volunteering and fundraising.

GWAAC saves lives across Bristol, Bath, South Gloucestershire, Gloucestershire, North Somerset and parts of Wiltshire. The GWAAC critical care team consists of a highly trained and experienced Critical Care Paramedic and Doctor, who bring the skill and expertise of an Accident and Emergency Department to the patient, and it is estimated one in five people who would otherwise die are saved by the actions of the GWAAC clinical team.  
 
GWAAC only treat the most serious cases where a patient has either life-threatening or life-changing injuries. From emergency blood transfusions to roadside amputations, performing caesarean sections or treating cardiac arrests, the crew bring the skill and expertise of an Accident and Emergency Department to the patient.On average they attend 5 incidents each day and in 2017 they carried out 1,824 missions making them one of the busiest air ambulances in the country. 
 
GWAAC need to raise £2.6million each year to stay operational, they are entirely charity funded by local people and we are proud to be able to help them keep flying.
