Air Ambulance Charity Creates Raffle to Support Life-Saving Efforts This Winter

The Great Western Air Ambulance Charity (GWAAC) has launched its winter raffle, offering participants the chance to win £2,500 or one of twenty other prizes. Tickets for the raffle cost £1 each and can be purchased from GWAAC’s website or their charity shops.

The prizes up for grabs include an overnight stay at The Pig near Bath, a Porsche driving experience at Silverstone, a silver gliding experience with Cotswold Gliding Club, a Dyson vacuum cleaner, a Weber BBQ and much more.

The funds raised from the raffle will help GWAAC continue to provide its lifesaving service to people across Bristol, Gloucestershire and surrounding areas.

Tim Ross-Smith, GWAAC’s Operations Officer said: “2023 is looking to be our busiest year ever, and with the demanding winter months ahead, we’re preparing for a challenging start to 2024! Part of my job is making sure the crew have everything they need – from fuel in the helicopter and cars to lifesaving kit and equipment on board, as well as looking after their wellbeing. These essential resources all cost money.”

He added: “I’m calling on your support because a raffle ticket purchased by you today can save lives this winter.”

The draw will take place on Friday 19 January 2024 and the 21 lucky winners will be contacted by post following the draw. To be eligible to participate, entrants must be 18 years old or over and the draw closes for entries online on 17 January 2024.

GWAAC is appealing to the people of Bristol, Gloucestershire and surrounding areas to visit their local GWAAC charity shop, purchase tickets for the raffle and contribute to the charity’s crucial mission of saving lives.
