A fun-filled day to commemorate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee at Llandysul caravan park Maes Glas raised a massive £700 for the Wales Air Ambulance.

Owners Tim and Sally Hill decided to fundraise for the lifesaving helicopter charity because of the park’s rural location.

“We’ve always supported the Wales Air Ambulance because living in such a rural area many miles from a hospital, it’s vital that we have a quick response to medical emergencies and only the air ambulance can provide this,” said Tim.

The successful family fun day saw 120 people attend with guests enjoying a picnic as well as entertainment from Luke, the ‘Close Up Magician’.

The children also enjoyed a sports event, which included traditional races such as egg and spoon, obstacle races and parachute games.

“Everyone really enjoyed themselves," continued Tim.

"There was crown making and ‘guess the name of the corgi’ and in the evening we provided a barbecue and pig racing. But we didn’t use real pigs.

"All the money raised was from donations on the day and we were really pleased to achieve a total of £700. It was a fantastic day which was fun for all ages and raised money to support a really worthy cause.”

“It sounds like a wonderful day, where people of all ages enjoyed a variety of different activities and entertainment and we’re so grateful for the donation,” commented Helen Pruett of Wales Air Ambulance.

“The Wales Air Ambulance needs to raise £8 million every year to continue its lifesaving service for the people of Wales so donations, like this £700, will help us save more lives.”

The Wales Air Ambulance Charity emergency service offers advanced critical care and is often described as a ‘Flying ED’.

The on-board consultants and critical care practitioners are highly skilled and carry some of the most pioneering medical equipment in the world.

They can deliver blood transfusions, administer anaesthesia, and undertake emergency operations at the scene of the incident, before flying the patient directly to specialist care.
