A model aeroplane club has handed hundreds of pounds to a charity which tried to save the life of one of their own.
The Woodspring Wings Model Club has presented a cheque for £500 to the Great Western Air Ambulance Charity after it tried to save the life of a leading club member.
Last September, the man suffered a heart attack shortly after flying his model at the Woodspring Wings Model Airfield, near Yatton.
Despite the best efforts from the charity’s medics, he died.
Show director Chris Armitage said the club was blown away by the ‘brilliant response’ from the charity, so decided to donate £500 to the ‘very deserving cause’.
