Our nominated charity
Wales Air Ambulance
Wales Air Ambulance is the national air ambulance charity for Wales, providing emergency air cover for those who face life-threatening illness or injuries. Their dedicated aircrews are on standby for everyone, in any part of the diverse landscape and communities, 365 days a year. They also operate the National Children's Air Ambulance for Wales.
The charity is funded by the support of generous individuals as well as corporate sponsors. They rely entirely on donations to raise around £6 million each year in order to operate the three helicopters in the mid, north and south of the country.
Here at Wales Cottage Holidays, we very much appreciate the work they do and so we'll be working with them as our nominated charity. We've set up a scheme whereby we ask that you, the customer, add £1 to the payment of your holiday and we will pass on, in full, the total amount raised to the charity.
We've set what we think is a fairly modest target and we'd love, with your help, to raise enough to provide the clothing, equipment and training for one crew member. The cost of the various items of kit for one crew member adds up to £2,989. You never know, we may even raise enough for two!
