Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance Say Thank You
8:31am 3rd October 2012
Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance have thanked the public for their support during last week's first ever National Air Ambulance Week.
The helicopter visited various locations across the two counties to raise awareness, including Salway Ash near Bridport.
They also raised £ 460 in donations towards their flying time, with us giving £10 per text, representing one minute's flying time.
That appeal's still open, as it looks to cover its running costs of £ 1.5 million.
In the first half of this year Dorset and Somerset attended nearly 300 incidents, of which 128 were in Dorset.
