If you or a member of your family has ever been treated or airlifted by the Air Ambulance, we’d love to hear from you

 

We are moving offices in the week beginning 17th October and there may be a delay in fulfilling orders from our on line shop. Please bear with us whilst we get our service up and running again as quickly as possible.

 

We exist to bring immediate, life-saving critical care to patients, when they need it most.

CHALLENGES

VOLUNTEERING

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.

DONATING

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.

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
