We are Great Western Air Ambulance Charity – proving critical care to 2.1 million people across Bristol, Bath and North East Somerset, North Somerset, Gloucestershire and South Gloucestershire. When someone’s life is in danger, they need help fast, and this is where we come in. Our team of pilots, Specialist Paramedics and Critical Care Doctors bring the skills and expertise of an Emergency Department to the scene directly to the patient, where they need it most. We attend 5 incidents on average every day, and some days it’s many more. It’s a vital service, yet many people don’t realise that we’re entirely charity funded. This is why we are calling on you to join our #ChristmasMission and help spread the word about the vital work we do.
What is the blogging assignment?
The festive season is a time for gathering with our friends, family and loved ones to celebrate and feast together. As the nights draw in and the sparkly lights are turned on, thoughts turn to office parties, family gatherings and mince pies. For many, it’s the chance to take a well-earned break and to get excited about the year ahead. It’s their favourite time of year.
Yet over the Christmas period, it’s a sad fact that many people across our region will be involved in a medical emergency or traumatic incident that leaves them fighting for their lives. When a life-changing incident happens, it’s not just the person who is affected, but their family and friends too.
This Christmas the Great Western Air Ambulance Charity Critical Care Team will be working every single day providing potentially life-saving treatment where it’s most needed to children and adults across our region. We attend over 5 incidents each day on average, and some days it’s many more. Our specialist crew bring the expertise of an emergency department directly to the person where and when they need it most. Each mission costs at least £1750, and so we’re looking for bloggers and Instagramers to help spread the word about our #ChristmasMission to fund as many as we can.
