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 £9,000 a day 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.

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.
