The Legacy Project – Thanking the Wales Air Ambulance
GoSafe’s Legacy Project gives a voice to people who have been affected by serious or fatal collisions on the roads of Wales. The project aims to share their experiences and stories to positively influence the behaviour and attitude of road users.
As part of the launch event held in September, GoSafe hosted a charity auction in aid of the Wales Air Ambulance, whose dedication, professionalism and swift response plays a major role in saving countless lives. Wales Air Ambulance is run solely on donations and receives no state aid. A total of £1,145 was raised during the evening, and today members of the GoSafe team presented a cheque at the charity’s base in Llanelli.
Five families from across Wales have shared their powerful stories with GoSafe as part of the 2019 Legacy Project.
Teresa Ciano, GoSafe Partnership Manager said, "Everyone has the right to use the roads safely and we should all share the roads and show respect to one another. We can all contribute to the safety of our roads if we only think for longer about our decisions. That split second of looking at your mobile phone or not taking that second glance at a junction can result in terrible and serious consequences for all parties involved.
"We are stronger as a collective voice, and we will work tirelessly towards a legacy of safer roads and a reduction in casualties and fatalities on our roads together.
"The stories featured in the 2019 Legacy Project will be key to our awareness raising activities and will always be in our minds and hearts when we continue the work of keeping Welsh roads safe. We hope to build upon the Legacy Project over the coming years, giving a platform to more families and communities to share their stories.”
