We've had our busiest ever year!

GWAAC News - January
Hi reader,

Welcome to January's newsletter and to 2017, a year which promises to be an exciting one for the charity. We've totted up the figures and 2016 was our busiest year ever! In total we were called to 1735 missions (80 more than in 2015), which is an average of almost 5 incidents a day.

With no day-to-day government, lottery or NHS funding, your donations and fundraising continue to help us keep saving lives, lives like John from Wiltshire.

On 4 December 2015 John started his new job, but that was to be the only day he spent there. On his way home that day, John was involved in a high-speed collision with another car, leaving him with life-threatening injuries. Thanks to our crew's work, John has made an excellent recovery.
