Green Milk bottle tops

D&S Air AmbulanceAttendees can also donate their green milk-bottle tops in aid of  Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance.

Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance is a registered charity, established to provide relief from sickness and injury for the people of Dorset and Somerset, by the provision of an air ambulance. They receive no direct funding from the Government or the National Lottery and rely on the generosity of the public for support.

Since their launch in 2000 they have flown thousands of missions and can attend up to eight or nine incidents in a single day.

Their airbase is situated at Henstridge Airfield on the Dorset/Somerset border. From there, they can be at any point in the two counties in less than 20 minutes. More importantly, the helicopter can, if required, then take a patient to the nearest Major Trauma Centre in the South West within a further 20 minutes.
