Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page; by sponsoring me to run the Bath Half Marathon you will help keep us flying and saving lives.

As one of Wiltshire's Air Ambulance pilots, I am only too aware of how vital the lifesaving skills our paramedics are when delivered by our exceptional Bell 429 helicopter.  I also have very personal experience of one type of injury we often face because in 2012 my father broke his neck in an accident.  Like many others, he is now paralaysed from the shoulders down and no longer able to enjoy his retirement through hedge laying and dry stone walling.  During the 10 months he was in hospital, and through my jobs as an Air Ambulance and Search and Rescue pilot, I have been amazed by the number of people affected by  injuries like his and the life changing circumstances they, their friends and families encounter.  The most common causes of these injuries seem to be falls, road traffic collisions, horse riding, diving, skiing and rugby - situations most of us could find ourselves in and the Wiltshire Air Ambulance often attends.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails.

Thank you.
