Following my daughter Esme being seriously injured in a road traffic accident, Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance (DSAA) provided life-saving care at the roadside, before airlifting her to hospital. As a family, we will be forever grateful for their expert care and the support they provided, undoubtedly ensuring Esme the best possible outcome.

Along with my sister Sara, brother-in-law Rich, and daughter-in-law (one day!) Jess, we are doing a collective sponsored slim, aiming to lose a total of 5 stone between us by the end of July.

The service that DSAA provide is 95% funded by charitable giving; by people like you. Last year, they were tasked to 2,424 incidents, with each mission costing approximately £3,500.

Please join us in helping to raise funds for this life-saving service. Together, with your support, they can be there for patients today, tomorrow and in the future.
