Merida Pearce The Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance is an amazing service which attends over 1000 emergency incidents each year. It is run as a charity without any direct funding from the Government or the National Lottery and relies on public support to keep it in the air.

Cycling 54 miles is a long way for me. I think I can make it but it will be a huge incentive to keep going if I know that people have sponsored me to do it!! Merida Pearce
