Diocesan Offering to Wales Air Ambulance

More than £8,000 has been donated to Wales Air Ambulance by the churches within the Diocese of St Asaph.

The charity which is the national air ambulance charity for Wales, was selected as the 2015 charity for the Diocesan Offering.

Wales Air Ambulance provides emergency air cover for those who face life-threatening illness or injuries. The charity’s three helicopters are confronted with a diverse and challenging landscape.  Each helicopter can be launched within three minutes of receiving an emergency call. From the three airbases, a helicopter can be anywhere in Wales within just 20 minutes.

Wales Air Ambulance Debra Sima from the charity said: “Wales Air Ambulance is extremely honoured to have been chosen as the St Asaph Diocese Charity of the Year and the amount you have all raised is fantastic.

“We are only able to continue the work we do with the generosity and kindness of the people in Wales.”

The final total raise by the Diocesan Offering for Wales Air Ambulance  is still to be confirmed but it it known to be more than £8,000 already.

The presentation to Debra Sima was made by Bishop Gregory Cameron, Clare Cameron, President of the Diocesan Offering and Ros Crawford, Diocesan Offering Officer.
