At Badminton on Sat 22nd November the Wiltshire Air Ambulance was presented with a cheque by the Beaufort Hunt Supporters Club for £1000. This donation was raised from the proceeds of the hugely popular and well run Beaufort Hunt Horse Show that is held annually at Badminton.
Earlier in the month the Air Ambulances of Wales, Great Western and again Wiltshire shared a donation of £5,000 from the proceeds of the famous Badminton Ride – a fun sponsored ride around the Duke and Duchess of Beaufort’s beautiful Badminton Estate. The Badminton Ride is run by a huge team of volunteers from the Beaufort Hunt and attracts horse riders from far and wide including Wales and Cornwall.
The Air Ambulance is close to the heart of not only horse riders but all those who take part in active sports or who are involved in accidents or sudden life threatening conditions.
