Hi - Tom and I have chosen to do this DSAA 55 mile Coast-to-Coast (Watchet in Somerset to West Bay in Dorset) for a number of reasons but primarily because we want to know that should, god forbid, a family member or someone we know need emergency assistance that the air ambulance will continue to be an option for them. We have witnessed the DSAA attend several emergency situations in and around the Mendips where we live over the last few years so we know how important their work is.

In addition, I turned 50 this year and I need to prove to Tom (16) that I am still fit enough to do it!!

Please consider giving us your support - it will be hugely appreciated by us and the DSAA Andy North
