Bristol Airport staff have voted Great Western Air Ambulance (GWAAC) to be its charity partner for this year.

GWAAC provides critical care and air ambulance services across Bristol, Somerset and Gloucestershire.

The charity had a record number of call-outs in 2018, attending to 1,887 incidents across the region,

Holly Adlem, corporate partnerships co-ordinator at GWAAC, said: “We’re so grateful to have been chosen as Bristol Airport’s charity of the year.

“We rely completely on support from our local community so to have Bristol Airport on board will make a massive difference to us, helping 
us to continue providing our life-saving service to those who need it the most.”

Last year, the airport raised more than £20,000 for North Somerset based charity, Children’s Hospice South West, via events including collections in the terminal, raffles, and cake sales.
