Welcome everyone, to the new member of our team….

Our cheeky little cartoon helicopter was given the name ‘Dasher’ at 5.00 pm this evening.

Dasher was created by Dave Hindson, a paramedic and friend of the Charity and the naming competition was launched in our ‘Beeline’ magazine last November.

We had some really great entries which we received by phone, post, email and via our Facebook page and we are delighted that so many people took part in this fun initiative.

The winner of the competition was Katie Dymott aged 10 from Poole in Dorset.

Bill Sivewright our Chief Executive Officer said, “We had so many names suggested, our selection panel had a tough time picking the winner, but in the end we selected ‘DASHER’ (Dorset and Somerset Helicopter Emergency Rescue).

“We are very grateful to Katie and will be inviting her to our airbase where she can see the real helicopter and meet the crew.  I’m sure you can expect to see more of Dasher in the near future.”

Why don’t you write a story about Dasher’s adventures and send them to us!  Who knows, we might just publish them on our website or in our magazine.  Simply email: or write to us at:  Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance, Landacre House, Castle Road, Chelston Business Park, Wellington, Somerset  TA21 9JQ
