Burnham-On-Sea family and friends thank air ambulance crew

Burnham-On-Sea youngster Jack Dyer, 3, is recovering well after being air-lifted to hospital following a serious garden accident last month.

And to show their appreciation for the swift response of the Somerset and Dorset Air Ambulance team, Jack's family, friends and Burnham and Highbridge Round Table have this week presented £850 to the life-saving service as a special thank you.

Jack was air-lifted to Frenchay Hospital in May after suffering leg injuries, but has since gone on to recover well.

The cheque was handed over to the helicopter fundraising team at this year's Shepton Mallett Festival and father Mark Dyer said: "This very worthy organisation provides a vital service to many people in our local area, and a lot of people do not realise that the service relies solely on charitable donations to keep its operation functioning."
