Challenge yourself to do something. Get out of your comfort zone and show your appreciation for the Air Ambulance. Take on one of our many challenges and see what a difference you can make.


Without the dedicated work that our volunteers put into events and many other areas of the charity’s work, we could not achieve the high standard that we undoubtedly do.


It currently costs the charity approximately £230,000 each month to keep the Air Ambulance flying and they couldn’t do it without the constant support they receive from your donations.


Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance attends many events through out the year from festivals to village fetes. To find your nearest event please check our calendar.

The 29 March was just one of those perfect bright Spring days to be out and about on horseback. It was right at the end of a happy few hours that my horse, Peachy, reared up and threw me off backwards. I can remember thinking I had always wondered how I would die and well, this was going to be it...

It all happened during the Christmas period 2011. My husband was in a Nursing Home suffering from Vascular Dementia and I wanted to spend Christmas Day with him so I had travelled down to Bristol and spent a few days with my son and family but returned home Christmas Eve


I was cycling with a friend of mine in Chilworth woods when I attempted a jump that I maybe should have attempted as a 16 year old boy and not a middle aged man. I Ended up flying through the air and don’t recall much apart from then landing on my collar bone.

So much has happened to me over the last year which makes it hard to know where to begin. I have recently run a half marathon, which is tough in itself, but taking on a half marathon after just getting back to fitness is even tougher
