Dinner and speaker at the Baron
Wed 27th January 2016 at 19.30 - 21.30
Tonight we welcomed Andrew Catling from the Wales Air Ambulance to speak to us....
This was another enjoyable evening with good food and good friends sharing banter. Andrew, a volunteer with the Wales Air Ambulance ( WAA), was an excellent speaker with a very professional presentation. Some of the slides are included here and many are self explanatory. Like all air ambulances, the WAA is run totally on donations from the communities it serves, although the medical staff are paid in part by the NHS in Wales. There are three helicopters ( see photos ) with the one based in Welshpool have the most technology and is able to fly at night if essential - the usual operation is during daylight hours only. After an very interesting talk we were proud to present Andrew with a £500 donation towards the running costs of the WAA.
