National Air Ambulance Week 2018

National Air Ambulance Week

What is National Air Ambulance Week?

Every day, Air Ambulance charities around the country receive incredible support from the general public in order to remain operational. National Air Ambulance Week is a chance for all of the member charities of the Association of Air Ambulances to get together to celebrate and promote the work of their local communities. This year, we are asking our supporters to come together during 10th – 16th September to raise the profile of their local Air Ambulance.


Did you know?

After a recent survey conducted by Essex & Herts Air Ambulance (EHAAT), it was found that more than 50% of participants did not know that EHAAT was funded solely by charity donations. Our mission for this year’s National Air Ambulance Week is to reach out to more people across Essex and Hertfordshire and raise awareness of the Charity’s vital service and much needed funds.

Read below to find out how you can support your local Air Ambulance this September.

Did you know?

During last year’s National Air Ambulance Week we raised over £7,000 just through our bucket collections! This year we are looking to raise even more and we need your help!

We have booked more collections this year (than ever before) and will need more volunteers to help cover these sites – can you join our Collection Crew?

Volunteer for as little as two hours during National Air Ambulance Week this September and help keep your local life-saving Charity operational.

There was such an atmosphere of fellowship and wellbeing, it was almost tangible. As an advertisement for EHAAT it could not have been better and I am sure an inspiration for us to redouble our efforts to support you. – Richard, St Albans Rotary Club following our ‘Evening of Celebration’.
