Around 40 members of Forfar Probus Club heard about the vital work of Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance (SCAA) at their recent meeting.

The guest speark was James Gray-Cheape, SCAA ambassador to Forfar, Kirriemuir and the Angus Glens. He explained that since its launch in May 2013 the helicopter, which is based at Perth Airport, has flown 500 missions. He explained that this is the only charity-funded helicopter in Scotland, the other two receiving Government funding

The members were shown a series of videos highlighting SCAA’s life-saving work and the importance of response times in relation to transferring casualties to hospital.

A vote of thanks was given to Mr Gray-Cheape as well as a cheque for the charity. Pictured are (from left) Ernest Carnegie, James Gray-Cheape and president Ian Stewart.
