AN AIR ambulance charity is hoping to raise more than £1,800 next month - but needs volunteers to help.

Great Western Air Ambulance Charity (GWAAC) is holding two fundraising bag packing sessions on December 14-15 at Sainsbury’s in Worle.

The charity has to raise about £1.5million a year to keep operational and the money raised this week will ensure it can attend more potentially life-saving emergency calls in the future.

A GWAAC spokesman said its crews attend an average of 20 incidents a month in Weston but needs volunteers this week to help its fundraising bid.

Anyone who can give up an hour or more between 10am-5pm on either day can call Emma on 01179 699344 or email fundraising@gwaac.com
