The family of Huw Moss Hughes have raised £3,314 in his memory for the charity that fought to save his life.

Huw’s partner, Bryony Nicholson walked with their family and friends 18 miles from their home in the village of Afonwen in the Llyn Peninsula to the Caernarfon airbase.

Their three-year-old daughter Alys-Non joined the family for the last part of the walk.

Huw, 25, died in 2018 following a motorcycle accident, when Alys-Non was just six months old. The plasterer and weight-lifting champion was airlifted to the Royal Stoke University Hospital with life threatening injuries but sadly passed away a few days later surrounded by his family.

Huw’s family are grateful to the Wales Air Ambulance medics for the treatment they gave him following his accident.

Every year since his tragic death his family have raised money for the Wales Air Ambulance in his memory. To date they’ve raised an incredible £8,500.

Reflecting on the walk and the money raised for the charity, Bryony said: “The walk was really good, although we had showers. Alys was excited to join us for the last part of the walk and we were met by family at the end of the walk.

 “I was so happy, we were amazed with the money that was raised, it is really good. We never thought we’d raise that amount. I want it to go towards helping others. The support we’ve received from family and friends has been amazing, especially from Huw’s mum.”

In December 2020, the Charity achieved its aim of operating a 24/7 service. Wales now has access to the service’s Emergency Department-standard critical care around the clock and to keep the helicopters in the air, the Charity needs to raise £8 million every year.

Alwyn Jones, Wales Air Ambulance Community fundraising coordinator, said: “It is impossible to imagine the pain and sadness that the family have gone through since losing Huw. It is incredible to hear that the family have held two fundraisers in memory of Huw, which is truly inspiring. Thank you so much to Bryony, Alys-Non and their family and friends for their continued support for the Wales Air Ambulance. They’ve raised an amazing £8,500 in memory of Huw. Diolch yn fawr”

Bryony is hoping to do more fundraising in future especially as it will be something that Alys can look forward to doing in memory of her father.
