Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance
Posted: 7th April 2017

A total of 22 Air ambulance and rescue services across England and Wales have recently received grants totaling £192,000. Since funding for these services began in 2006, over £2.2 million has been donated. These life saving services rely entirely on charitable grants and donations and it is a cause close to the hearts of many Freemasons.

Freemasons in Bristol, Gloucestershire and Somerset have recently been recognized for their long standing support for their local air ambulance charity and the Masonic Square and Compass has been added to the Great Western Air Ambulance.

Chief Executive John Christensen said: “We have been blown away by the generosity of the Freemasons, and wanted to do something to recognise the huge contribution they have made to our charity. It seemed fitting to have their logo placed on our helicopter, as this will be visible wherever we go across the six counties we cover. I was delighted to be able to meet representatives from the three provinces to thank them in person, and tell them more about how their support has made a big difference to us.”
