WHA gives support to Wales Air Ambulance

A health care cash plan provider is helping to fly the A&E department to the patient, by funding emergency helicopter missions.

WHA presented a donation of £500 to the Wales Air Ambulance crew at Caernarfon Airport, to help fund the charity’s missions across Wales.

WHA is the health care cash plan provider in Wales, providing cover for the costs of staying in good health for its 25,000 members and their families.

Alan Patterson, WHA Chair, said: “WHA has a long history of supporting health related organisations in Wales and we are please to be able to suppot Wales Air Ambulance with a donation of £500.

“The Wales Air Ambulance charity provies an invaluable service to the people of Wales and we hope that our donation will help with the cost needed to help those with life-threatening illness or injuries.”

Every year, Wales Air Ambulance needs to raise £6.5 million every year to keep its four helicopters flying across Wales.

Each of the Welsh helicopter charity’s lifesaving missions costs around £1,500.

Lynne Garlick, WAA North Wales Fundraising Manager, said: “We would like to say a huge thank you to the WHA for their support.

“As a charity, we rely on kind donations to fund our services, and we wouldn’t be able to complete our missions across Wales without the support we receive from the people of Wales.

“The donation from the WHA will go to help save lives across Wales.”
