An air ambulance service has been chosen as Bristol Airport's charity partner for 2019.
The Great Western Air Ambulance Charity (GWACC) provides critical care and air ambulance services to people living in North Somerset, Bristol and Gloucestershire.
The charity had a record number of call outs in 2018, attending to 1,887 incidents across the region,
GWAAC corporate partnerships coordinator Holly Adlem said: “We’re so grateful to have been chosen as Bristol Airport’s charity of the year.
“The service relies complete on support from our community so to have Bristol Airport on board will make a massive difference.
“We can continue to provide a life-saving service to people who need it most.”
Last year the airport raised more than £20,000 for Children’s Hospice South West and runs events with collections held at terminals featuring raffles and cake sales.
