The Wales Air Ambulance is a valuable asset to local communities of Wales as well as to visitors and tourists, and is a service that depends solely on donations.
As well as making the donation on the evening Best of Wales were also proud to sponsor a part of the Cerddwn Ymlaen campaign this year to help them raise funds for the charity. This involved providing accommodation for the walkers in Cardiff as well as helping out along the 200 mile walk and supporting them on their challenging journey.
Llion Pughe director of Best of Wales said ‘We have had a great time helping out on the Cerddwn Ymlaen walk while raising vital funds for the Wales Air Ambulance. As well as sponsoring the walk we are delighted to have been able to present a further cheque of £452.00 to Cerddwn Ymlaen and the Wales Air Ambulance. Thank you to all our customers who booked with us during the month which made our donation possible.’
