Silver Coin Challenge

The Silver Coin Challenge is an initiative for schools to get involved in fundraising.

Silver Coin Challenge

Your local air ambulance needs your help!

We are a charity and rely upon the generosity and goodwill of the people of Essex and Hertfordshire to remain operational and keep saving lives.

As such, we are inviting all primary schools across Essex and Hertfordshire to take part in our Silver Coin Challenge. It’s as simple as it sounds, just collect as many silver coins as you can for a good cause!

Be creative!

Whether it’s collecting enough coins to run the length of the playground, creating the shape of a helicopter, or the outline of a flight helmet… the sky’s the limit!

The prize:

The winners of the Longest Coin Trail and the Highest Amount Raised will win a visit from Dr Dani or Paramedic Perry, our trusty mascots!

Get involved!
