Handing over the money to Wiltshire Air Ambulance

A paramedic from Wiltshire Air Ambulance came to collect the money that these children raised in an event that they organised themselves.  He talked to the children about the day to day running of The Air Ambulance  and what a vital service it is and said how impressed he was with the amount raised and how helpful it was.
