Here in Llanelli, we remain proud to host the Wales Air Ambulance base in Dafen.

That’s why it’s so important to spread the news that Air Ambulance Week 2023 takes place this week dedicated to raising awareness and funds for the vital lifesaving work of air ambulance charities across the UK. Air ambulances make over 37,000 lifesaving missions each year across the UK and the helicopters depend almost entirely on charitable donations to deliver their lifesaving care, with the NHS paying for doctors and medical equipment.

Each lifesaving mission costs on average £3,962 and that’s why this week, in particular, Air Ambulances UK is calling on people all over the UK to support their local air ambulance to ensure air ambulance charities continue to save lives every day.
