Wales Air Ambulance charity shop, Abergavenny
Wales Air Ambulance charity shop, Abergavenny
Located on Frogmore Street. The sale of donated items, such as furniture, bric-a-brac, books and toys, provides funds for Wales Air Ambulance, an all-Wales charity providing a vital service through emergency air cover for those who face life-threatening illness or injuries. Three helicopters are on active duty 365 days a year. They are needed because of the widely-scattered population and diverse landscape in Wales, where many people live in isolated locations far from an accident and emergency service. Also, the ever increasing problem of traffic congestion and collisions in more urban areas can lead to delayed response times for road ambulances.
There is a helicopter landing pad LinkExternal link adjacent to the Accident and Emergency unit at the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff.
