Local Haven Holiday Parks in Pembrokeshire such as - Kiln Park, Lydstep Beach and Penally Court have had a helping in hand in raising a magnificent donation of over £38,000 to the Wales Air Ambulance charity.

Haven’s Welsh Holiday Parks have proudly announced a fantastic donation of over £38,000 since 2019 to the Welsh Air Ambulance Service, demonstrating their commitment to community welfare and emergency services.

Haven’s Greenacres; Hafan y Mor; Presthaven; Kiln Park; Lydstep Beach; Penally Court; and Quay West holiday parks all participated in a remarkable initiative whereby a portion of the sale from each carrier bag sold in the on-site mini markets is put to the side and donated at the end of the year.

Wales Air Ambulance is consultant-led, taking hospital-standard treatments to the patient and, if required, transferring them directly to the most appropriate hospital for their illness or injury.

For the patient, this can mean hours saved when compared to standard care and is proven to improve survival and early recovery.

The charity relies on public donations to raise the £11.2 million required every year to keep the helicopters in the air and rapid response vehicles on the road.

Colin Archibald, West Operations Director at Haven said: “The Welsh Air Ambulance Service plays a crucial role in emergency response, and we are proud to contribute to their ongoing efforts to save lives.”

The charity, formed in 2001, operates from bases across Wales and, since its conception, has completed over 46,000 missions and is on standby 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
