FUNDRAISING

Our charity for 2017 is the WILTSHIRE AIR AMBULANCE

 

In 2016, a living history friend suffered a heart attack which necessitated the use of The Wiltshire Air Ambulance. Consequently we have decided that our fundraising activities for 2017 should be for the WAA.

 

We also produce exclusive pictorial items with 50p from each item sold being donated to our chosen charity. These items are also available via the Items for Sale tab.

The Wiltshire Air Ambulance

 

“Wiltshire Air Ambulance was established in March 1990 as a joint venture between the Wiltshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust and the Wiltshire Constabulary. Sharing resources kept our costs down and the charity needed £700,000 a year to keep Wiltshire’s air ambulance in the skies. In January 2015 we started operating a dedicated air ambulance which means we must raise £3.25m a year.

 

We are a registered charity and rely almost entirely on public donations to keep us flying and do not receive any central government funding. We really are funded by you and flying for you.”

 

 

The Royal British Legion

 

“The Royal British Legion helps the whole Armed Forces community through welfare, comradeship and representation as well as being the Nation’s custodian of Remembrance. We help serving members of the Armed Forces, ex-Service men and women (veterans), their families and dependents all year-round.”
