  • Wiltshire Air Ambulance Airbase Appeal Posted on 13 May 2017

    Can You Help Us To Build A Better Future For Your Air Ambulance?

    Wiltshire Air Ambulance has been saving lives for over 27 years and work has begun on our new airbase at Semington, near Melksham.

    The new airbase will bring together our helicopter, aircrew and charity team onto one site for the first time.

    The central location of our new airbase will mean our helicopter will be able to reach all parts of Wiltshire within 11 minutes, as it currently does now from its base in Devizes.

    Our fundraising appeal for the new airbase has got off to a flying start, but we still need to raise just under £1 million to complete the building and equipping of it.

    Can you help us raise the vital funds for our Airbase Appeal? There are lots of different ways you can get involved, such as holding a cake sale, organising a challenge event or uploading a photo for our helicopter mosaic.

    We also have fun ways for schools and businesses to get onboard and support our appeal.

    Find our more by visiting our special website , call the Charity Team office on 01380 739453 or email

    Registered charity number: 1144097
