Today, representatives of the Wiltshire Air Ambulance service visited our school to accept a donation of £250. The money was raised by our generous students and staff to support this valuable public service and the vital work they do.
It was the Air Ambulance service’s second visit to our school this year, after recently delivering a first aid session to our year 10 students. Their visit thrilled our students and gave them an extremely valuable lesson in assisting people with injuries.
The Wiltshire Air Ambulance staff kindly conducted the session completely free of charge — whereas other providers charge a set fee for the course. In order to thank them for their generosity, our students and staff decided to make a donation.
Josie Meredith, Faculty Leader of Humanities and Social Sciences, said: “It was so selfless of the Wiltshire Air Ambulance to deliver these training sessions for free. Our students learned life-saving skills and thoroughly enjoyed the sessions, so we felt we had to give something back. Students and staff agreed that raising money to make a donation was a great way to show our appreciation, and we are proud to have raised £250 to support their amazing work."
It was great to welcome the Wiltshire Air Ambulance back to our school, and we were delighted to raise £250, which will go toward sustaining their crucial, life-saving work.
