HAMPSHIRE’S air ambulance welcomed a television star for a flying visit.

Former Royal Marine Commando and star of SAS: Who Dares Wins Jason Fox visited the charity’s airbase on Monday.

The visit coincided with the recent launch of HIOWAA’s online Wellbeing Programme.

Jason said: “Having seen first-hand the devastating impact that exposure to traumatic events can have upon an individual’s mental health, I was blown away by the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance Wellbeing Programme. Breaking the stigma associated with mental health, it offers an often-needed life-line to those whose job it is to care for others.”
