Every day of the year, Wiltshire Air Ambulance is on hand to save lives around the county.
At The Croft, we decided to do our part to help keep this amazing service running. Over the past few months, we’ve been raising money to donate to their cause.
Last Thursday, we were visited by Holly and Keith from the Wiltshire Air Ambulance for a very special assembly. Paramedic Keith Mills discussed the challenges of his role, and explained how Wiltshire Air Ambulance requires an annual income of £3.75 million to continue their crucial service.
After the presentation, our year 6 head girl and house captains handed over a cheque of more than £600 to Wiltshire Air Ambulance.
This amazing sum was raised by ticket sales for a number of events, including our nativity plays and carol service at Christmas. Thanks to everyone who contributed; your support helps save lives.
At The Croft, we believe it’s crucial to educate our students on the importance of supporting local charities. Every day, we rely on services such as the Wiltshire Air Ambulance to keep us safe and to come to our aid in an emergency. We teach our pupils that it is therefore also important for them to give back when they are able.
We would like to say a big thank you to Keith and Holly from Wiltshire Air Ambulance for visiting last Thursday. It was truly enlightening to learn more about the amazing work they do every day.
The Wiltshire Air Ambulance depends on public support and donations. We encourage anyone who is able to donate to this vital service via their website: https://www.wiltshireairambulance.co.uk/donate/
