We provide all-Wales emergency air cover to serve Wales & save lives 365 days a year


On the 9th October 2010 I had a significant fall while descending Red Gill after reaching Scafell summit in the Lake District. I fell 60ft and sustained a broken shoulder (6 pieces), broken foot and other injuries and had to be airlifted to the West Cumberland Hospital in Whitehaven. 11 team members where involved in my rescue.

I needed to have 2 operations and I spent 2 weeks in hospital and a further 3 months off work. I have since had to have another operation on my shoulder to remove the pins and plate.

9 years ago I did the 200 mile coast to coast walk to raise funds for the Mountain Rescue and to mark the 10 year anniversary I thought it would be good to do something for the Air Ambulance. I spend most of my spare time in North Wales so the WAA was an easy choice. It costs £1,500 for each callout so that is the target that I'm setting as a bench mark.

If you can spare a few pennies for this wonderful charity and help me to give something back that would be appreciated.

Wales Air Ambulance Charity is funded by the people of Wales and requires £6.5 million a year to keep its four helicopters in the sky, serving Wales and saving lives. The charity can be anywhere in Wales within 20 minutes, its doctors and medics fly the A&E department to the patient. It also runs the Children's Wales Air Ambulance service, transferring vulnerable babies and children to the specialist hospitals across the UK. Your donations will help keep this vital service in Wales.

The Wales Air Ambulance Charity provides advanced life-saving emergency care for everyone in Wales, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We are a ‘mobile emergency department’ that relies entirely on donations to keep our helicopters in the air and rapid response vehicles on the road.
