Your local life-saving charity needs your support more than ever. We can’t fly without you. We bring life-saving care to patients; our missions are funded by your donations. 


Give thanks to your local life-saving charity

New to 2021! We have launched an exciting new platform where you can celebrate the team at Essex & Herts Air Ambulance by sharing a memory, picture or story to say thank you this Air Ambulance Week for all that they do.

What is Air Ambulance Week?

Every day, air ambulance charities around the country receive incredible support from the general public in order to remain operational. Air Ambulance Week is a chance for all of the member charities of Air Ambulances UK to get together to celebrate and promote the work of their local communities. This year, we are asking our supporters to come together during the 6th-12th September to raise the profile of their local air ambulance. 

Collection Crew

2020 was a year like no other and as we know, it affected us all. Due to restrictions, we were unable to hold many bucket collections which led us to go virtual! A key part of any Air Ambulance Week is the bucket collections and thanks to the generosity of the people of Essex and Hertfordshire during Air Ambulance Week 2019, we raised over £14,000 just through our bucket collections! 

During these uncertain times we need you more than ever! Join our Collection Crew and help save lives. Could you volunteer for as little as two hours during Air Ambulance Week this September and help keep your local life-saving charity operational?

If you are able to support your local air ambulance by helping at one of our bucket collections, please do get in touch by calling the Fundraising Team on 0345 2417 690 or following the link below to fill in an enquiry form.
