Beverley Lewis, 65, had been travelling to Criccieth, in Gwynedd, on holiday with her friends on 3 September 2022, when she was involved in a road traffic collision in Bala.
The Wales Air Ambulance team arrived swiftly to the scene and provided advanced critical care that proved to be instrumental in stabilising Beverley before airlifting her to the major trauma centre at The Royal Stoke University Hospital, where she spent nine days and underwent surgery.
She entered the raffle after receiving an direct mail email from the Charity as a way of expressing her gratitude to the Wales Air Ambulance. In fact, her winning ticket was one of the first tickets bought.
The summer raffle was officially launched by Welsh entertainer Max Boyce on 25 May and ran for nine weeks. The first prize was for £3,000 with a second prize of £500 and a third prize of £300. More than 39,000 tickets were sold and a fantastic £50,000 was raised during the campaign, which will enable the charity to save even more lives.
