The group gave our charity a very generous donation of £25,000 back in 2019.

It decided to make this latest substantial gift after discovering we were called to 20 potentially lifesaving incidents in the immediate Malmesbury area in the last 15 months.

MLOF provides funds to help local people with specific medical needs, which are not available from other sources. In particular, it provides essential equipment for use by the Malmesbury Primary Care Centre, Athelstan House and by patients in their own homes.

MLOF chairman David Hide said: “Although most of our donations are for items of medical equipment, we know what an absolutely vital service the WAA provides. It is essential that it is able to continue its life saving work and we are delighted to help in this way.”

“This amount of money is hugely welcome and we cannot thank MLOF enough. Our service is vital in Wiltshire, Bath and the surrounding areas and this will go a long way to keeping us flying. We literally are funded by you, flying for you.”

Barbara Gray, deputy chief executive for Wiltshire Air Ambulance
