Leave us a gift in your Will

To leave a gift in your will ensures the future of a vital service to the community. A significant amount of donations come to us from our incredible supporters who leave a legacy in their will.

Essex & Herts Air Ambulance enables pre-hospital care doctors and critical care paramedics to be rushed to the scene of an incident. Their life-saving support equipment and expertise provides advanced clinical care that is normally only found in Emergency Departments.


Essex & Herts Air Ambulance recognises 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.

One of our hard-working representatives can host an engaging and educational assembly at your school. They can even bring our mascot, Pilot Pete along! Even better, all visits can be worked to fit your schedule.
