One of the 16 Wales Air Ambulance shops has recently been celebrating a successful first year.

The shop on College St in Swansea city centre turned one years old on Thursday October 26, and has enjoyed a very successful first year after proving to be popular in the locality.

Store Manager Julie Cornelius said, “We would like to thank all our volunteers and loyal customers for their support.

We look forward to another exciting and successful year ahead.”

Volunteers at the shop were also joined by Wales Air Ambulance mascot ‘Biggles’ the bear during the event.

Community Co-ordinator Donna Rogers said “We are incredibly proud of the Swansea shop, especially after such a successful first year.

We would like to thank all our loyal customers who visit regularly and to anyone who came down on the day to celebrate with our staff and volunteers.”

The Swansea shop continues to go from strength to strength and helps save people’s lives in Wales by keeping the helicopters flying.
