Lifesaving 90th birthday donation

A Nurse from Bala has raised a lifesaving donation for a Welsh helicopter charity to celebrate her milestone birthday.

Gwyneth Griffiths asked for donations to Wales Air Ambulance in lieu of gifts for her 90th birthday, raising over £800.

In honour of her birthday, family and friends donated to Gwyneth’s collection to fund lifesaving helicopter missions across Wales.

The fundraiser raised £802.50 for Wales Air Ambulance, helping the charity to raise the £6.5 million needed every year to run its services.

The 90-year-old presented her birthday donation to Carl Hudson, Wales Air Ambulance Paramedic, at Caernarfon airport.

Carl said: “This is a truly wonderful gesture, we would like to thank Gwyneth for her kind support on her milestone birthday.

“We would also like to wish Gwyneth many happy returns for her 90th birthday!”
