A Pembrokeshire museum has raised a lifesaving donation for Wales Air Ambulance, after opening its doors in aid of the Welsh helicopter charity. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The Museum of Scrimpinology, Llangwm, displays a carefully curated collection of memorabilia over the last century. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The Pembrokeshire museum specialises in collecting household items, tools, games and everyday objects to provoke happy childhood memories. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Jeff James, the creator of The Museum of Scrimpinology, opened the doors to the exhibits in the end of May in aid of Wales Air Ambulance; helping the charity to raise the £6 million needed every year to fund its services. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The museum raised £1,256 for Wales Air Ambulance by selling ice creams and collecting kind donations for the community. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Tony Key, Wales Air Ambulance Community Coordinator, said: “As a charity, Wales Air Ambulance relies on kind donations to keep our helicopters flying over Wales. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

“Without the kind support of the people of Wales, we wouldn’t be able to fund our lifesaving missions. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

“We would like to thank the fantastic Museum of Scrimpinology for their kind support and for raising such an outstanding donation for us!” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
