As with all air ambulance services in the UK, the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance (DSAA) relies solely on the generosity of the public to continue it's difficult work.

I am reaching the end of my 2nd year in 3 as a paramedic student at Bournemouth University, and have had the privilege of working side by side in the field with the DSAA on several occasions. Seeing them in action has given me a great appreciation of their vital role within the chain of emergency services, and so being able to combine my love for running with the possibility of raising some money for them seemed like an opportunity not to miss.
