One in ten missions is funded by a legacy

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.

Once stabilised, a patient is taken by air or land to the most appropriate hospital for their needs. Legacy giving is a way of supporting your local air ambulance. It is a wonderful gift that does not affect you in your lifetime. When you leave a gift in your will to a charity the gift is exempt from Inheritance Tax and can reduce the overall tax liability to an estate.

We hope that you will consider leaving a gift to Essex & Herts Air Ambulance.

Leave a gift in your will. It will never be forgotten because it could help save a life.

Bridget’s Uncle “Chips” leaves EHAAT a gift in his will

George Allen, affectionately known as “Chips,” left Essex & Herts Air Ambulance a £20,000 gift in his Will – a portion of the proceeds from his classic car collection sold at auction following his death at the age of 93. 

“Anyone who knows Uncle Chips will remember him as a collector of absolutely everything. He started with the cars many years ago and grew the collection, keeping them in pristine condition.”

The money raised from selling his collection of classic and personal vehicles saw £58,000 shared between various charities he held close to his heart, including EHAAT. Bridget said: “He was a great supporter of Essex & Herts Air Ambulance and played the Flight For Life lottery. He always spoke highly of the charity’s amazing work, especially when he saw the helicopter taking to the skies above Halstead.”

“If it wasn’t for the air ambulance air crew I would not be here today; a thought that does not bear thinking about. I’ll never be able to repay the team that saved my life but I hope that by sharing my story I will encourage you to support this incredibly worthy charity.”
