School launches appeal for Wales Air Ambulance after stabbing incident

YSGOL Dyffryn Aman in Ammanford, Carmarthenshire, where three people were stabbed, has launched a fundraising appeal to support the Wales Air Ambulance, which responded to assist the injured. A teenage girl has appeared in court accused of attempting to murder two teachers and a pupil on April 24.

The school’s appeal has received a strong response, with nearly £5,000 raised for the Welsh Air Ambulance Charitable Trust through a JustGiving page set up after the incident.

By the end of April, donations had reached £4,875, with many messages of support. The school said it launched the appeal in response to offers of help from the public.

Following the incident on April 24, three people with knife injuries were taken to hospital but have all been discharged. The school expressed gratitude to the air ambulance service for their excellent work.

The fundraising page has received numerous supportive messages. Julie Harvey thanked the service for their speedy response and noted that colleagues and pupils are doing well. Donna Gibbs also expressed thanks for the timely assistance provided to their friends in need.

After the incident, Ysgol Dyffryn Aman was closed to pupils for two days while Dyfed-Powys Police conducted investigations. The school reopened on April 29, with counselling available for students and staff.

In court on April 26, a 13-year-old girl accused of attempted murder confirmed her name, address, and age. Her identity cannot be revealed due to her age. She is scheduled to appear at Swansea Crown Court on May 27.
