This appeal is now closed.

Thank you for all your amazing support during our Buy-a-Brick appeal. We are immensely grateful and every pound of your brick purchases will now go into the building of our new airbase at North Weald.

For all those supporters who purchased either a Gold or Platinum brick, we will be contacting you over the coming weeks to find out what name you would like on your brick.

Additionally supporters who purchased a platinum brick, will be invited to our new visitor centre which we are looking to open in the Autumn of this year. We will contact you nearer the time.

We can’t fly without you!

A message from our CEO

Here at Essex & Herts Air Ambulance (EHAAT) we are continually looking to develop and improve the life-saving service we provide for the critically ill and injured patients we attend.

Building our own airbase rather than leasing it will help us do this by securing the future of the Charity’s North Weald operations for many years to come.

As well as giving us security of tenure, building the facility ourselves will result in significant cost savings compared to leasing a new building built to the same specification.

In addition to housing one of our helicopters and two rapid response vehicles, the new premises will include areas for training, mentoring, patient liaison and cross-training with other emergency services, which will benefit both EHAAT and the local pre-hospital care community.

The new facility will include a visitor centre which will allow us to welcome and engage with the local community, plus space for our fundraising team to work more closely with their clinical colleagues.

We are pleased that it has been possible to produce a design of such high quality which is also cost-effective.

By contributing to this fundraiser, you are helping to make sure that EHAAT has a base from which it can continue to offer a life-saving service of the very highest quality to the people of Essex and Hertfordshire and beyond.

Kind regards,
Jane Gurney
CEO, EHAAT
