She is now encouraging others to leave something to the charity in their wills.

In April 2012, Sue Williams was travelling along the A303 in the passenger seat of her friends car. 

The vehicle came off the road at Chicklade and rolled several times, leaving Sue with a broken back, neck, left arm, rib and a moderate to severe traumatic brain injury. 

Her life was saved that day, thanks to the quick response from the Wiltshire Air Ambulance who took her to hospital in Bristol. 

Sue and her partner Dave Woodland live in Warminster and she used to be the assistant manager at Salisbury Pet Stores.


Now, Sue and Dave have left a gift in their wills to the charity, so that they can continue to support people in the county.

The couple also want others to think about doing the same, as one in three missions they undertake are paid for by legacy gifts.

Sue said

"Wiltshire Air Ambulance saved my life and I've left a gift in my Will to them as I want to ensure they are able to save lives in the future when I pass away. 

The knowledge and experience of their paramedics meant that I was taken to the most appropriate trauma centre. It is a valuable lifesaving resource available to all. I wouldn't be here today without them."

You can visit the charity's website to find out more about leaving a gift in your will.
