£1,800 raised for Children’s Wales Air Ambulance


An Oswestry family who recently held a charity evening have raised £1,800 for the Children's Wales Air Ambulance.

Nia Morris and her husband Ian and daughter Alice from Oswestry decided to hold the charity event to thank the Children's Wales Air Ambulance for transporting their daughter Florence all the way from Leeds down to Wrexham Maelor hospital with great care.  Nia told Oswestry Life magazine, "We had a difficult summer in 2017, and as a family and we wanted to raise a nice amount of money to help family’s who find themselves in a similar situation to us". "The monies will go direct to the Children's Wales Air Ambulance, not a lot of people realise this incredible service is available for children".

The fun filled family evening held at the end of July at The Venue, consisted of a hog roast, charity auction and live music.

Nia said, "We would like to thank everyone who donated and attended the charity evening".
