Our Ambassadors

Wiltshire Air Ambulance Ambassador Shelley Rudman, Olympic silver medalist 
and World Champion in Skeleton Bobsleigh who lives in the Pewsey Vale, says:

“Wiltshire Air Ambulance is very much needed in such a rural area.
The plans for the new airbase are great. I particularly think the idea
that schools can visit as part of an education programme is brilliant
and enables everyone to feel more connected to the charity.”

Wiltshire Air Ambulance Ambassador Lauren Booth, British Champion Para-cyclist from
Chippenham, says:

“Wiltshire Air Ambulance covers such a large area and is able to
get to incidents within minutes, with highly trained medics and
specialist medical equipment on board, to save lives. A modern
airbase with everyone based at the same place can only make
the charity better.”

Wiltshire Air Ambulance Ambassador Alan Dedicoat, broadcaster and who is known 
as the ‘Voice of the Balls’ on the National Lottery draw TV programme and is the
voice of Strictly Come Dancing on BBC One, says:

“Wiltshire Air Ambulance can mean the difference between life or death due to the speed of its helicopter and the highly trained crew
on board. The new airbase will have improved operation and training facilities, enabling the team’s paramedics to provide the best possible care to critically injured and ill patients.”

Wiltshire Air Ambulance Ambassador Paul Martin, presenter of BBC TV’s antiques
programme Flog It! and who lives in Seend, says:

“In a rural community like Wiltshire, the air ambulance is vital – it
saves lives. We need it. It’s an extremely well supported charity with people fundraising for it day in and day out enabling the helicopter
and crew to fly and save lives. The new airbase is very exciting and
will enable the air ambulance to save future generations.”

Wiltshire Air Ambulance Ambassadors Nick Mason, musician and founding member of
Pink Floyd, and his wife Annette Mason, an actress and aviation correspondent, say:

“We have lived in Corsham for over 20 years and we are enormously keen supporters of Wiltshire Air Ambulance, both from the point of   view of knowing people who have benefitted from the service but       also because both of us are enthusiastic pilots ourselves. The new airbase will be a brilliant facility, enabling this wonderful charity to    carry on its vital, lifesaving work.”

of competing for Great Britain in the 2020 Paralympics in Tokyo. 

"Wiltshire Air Ambulance is a vital service that we couldn't do without, especially in rural locations such as where I had my horse riding accident in 2012. If they hadn't airlifted me to hospital quickly, the outcome could have been different. The new airbase is crucial to Wiltshire Air Ambulance's future and the charity needs the public's support to raise the remaining funds to make it a reality."

medalist in swimming who lives in Box, Wiltshire.

"Stephanie Millward was close to a place in the British international
able-bodied team and, having broken the British record for the
100-metre backstroke at the age of 15, hoped to qualify for the
2000 Olympics in Sydney before she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.  She qualified for the 2008 Paralympics in Beijing, competed in London 2012 and Rio 2016." 

Wiltshire Air Ambulance Ambassador Matt Perry, ex-professional rugby union player,

“Wiltshire Air Ambulance is a fantastic charity. Not many people know Wiltshire Air Ambulance is self-funded and I’m honoured to come on board as an Ambassador to help support it. The professionalism of the team is outstanding. The pilots and paramedics attend so many different accidents and traumas, from road traffic collisions to sporting injuries and catastrophic medical emergencies, such as cardiac arrests, and give the best possible care.”
