“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 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 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.”
“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.”
“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.”

"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."
"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."
