Welsh Ambulance Service staff working on Christmas Day will be able to enjoy a traditional festive lunch thanks to the generosity of pubs and restaurants across Wales.

Hospitality businesses from every corner of the country have stepped in, many free of charge, to feed more than 500  colleagues working a day shift at all our  ambulance stations, contact centres and make ready depots.

The goodwill gesture brings a welcome slice of normality for those away from their families and friends on Christmas Day.

Judith Bryce, the Trust’s Assistant Director of Operations (National Operations and Support), said: “We operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year which means many of our colleagues  will miss the bulk of Christmas Day at home with loved ones whilst on duty.

“We are extremely grateful to all of the businesses who have come forward once again to provide meals – especially after another challenging pandemic year where this gesture continues to mean a lot to us as a service and to individuals.”

Also this year, the Trust is preparing and delivering hampers filled with festive treats to all of its stations, premises and contact centres.

In partnership with local delivery firms, 164 baskets of favourites such as mince pies, chocolates, hot drinks and crisps will be distributed across the country, funded once again through the Trust’s Charitable Funds.
