Air Ambulance Week

During Air Ambulance Week (in September), we join the other air ambulance charities to highlight how we continue to make a life-saving difference in critical moments. Throughout the week, we share patient stories and celebrate the talented and dedicated critical care teams.  Help us celebrate Air Ambulance Week by holding a fundraising event and to thank the crews by sharing a memory, picture or story.

At Essex & Herts Air Ambulance, we recognise the importance of reaching out to the doctors, paramedics, pilots and fundraisers of the future – that’s why we want your school to get involved.

Challenge Badge

Challenge Badge encourages Guides, Brownies, Scouts, Beavers and Rainbows to participate in activities across four key categories: Essex & Herts Air Ambulance, Helicopters, Air and Fundraising. From learning CPR to making an emergency call, researching helicopters, visiting an Essex & Herts Air Ambulance base and being a fundraiser for the charity, there are plenty of activities to get stuck into. It costs in excess of £1,000,000 every month to remain operational and to cover all charitable costs – that’s around £12 million a year! By completing our Challenge Badge, you’re not only learning vital skills and raising awareness of the charity, but you’re also raising the vital funds needed to continue our life-saving work.
