Full Canvasser Statement »

Essex & Herts Air Ambulance sends Canvassers door to door to promote the Flight for Life Lottery and gain new members. Each week our Canvassers visit different areas in Essex and Hertfordshire, working in venues and going door-to-door up until 9pm.

Please note that from time to time the Canvassers may also promote our Regular Giving programme.

The Charity would like to emphasise that the Canvassers will only ask people to sign up by Direct Debit and do not ask for cash up front.

All Canvassers are in EHAAT branded clothing and carry I.D. badges. Anyone that receives a visit from a Canvasser is advised to ask for I.D and if unsure, to call the Lottery Team on 0345 2417 688 for clarification. All canvassers working on behalf of EHAAT have attended Dementia Training and work within the policies of the Charity regarding signing up underage and vulnerable people.

Andy Parmenter


The best thing about working at EHAAT is knowing that I am helping to keep the helicopters flying and listening to people’s stories. When I’m not working for the Charity I enjoy walking my dog and going to the gym.

Carlos Dias


I have been working for EHAAT for just over 3 years now. I joined the Air Ambulance to make a difference and I know what I am doing is helping to save lives. They are great people to work for and we are all making a difference.

I have worked as an EHAAT canvasser for 6 years. Prior to this job I worked for British Gas. It is a pleasure to be part of such a great cause, helping to raise the critical funds need to keep the Charity operational and saving lives.

Darren Budd


After a career as a plasterer I joined EHAAT as a canvasser 8 years ago. It is truly rewarding knowing that you are contributing to the Charity’s success. The Charity is improving their procedures and saving more lives from the funds generated by the public's support.

Gary Atkinson


After 6 years of British Gas Door to Door Canvassing I joined a team of friends canvassing for EHAAT. I find it a very rewarding job knowing that I help, as a team, to keep our helicopters in the air and saving as many lives as possible.

Gary Woolhead


I've been working for EHAAT for 5 years after many years working in the construction industry. I'm proud of the fact that in those five years I have played a part in more than DOUBLING the Flight for Life Lottery membership, providing vital funds for the Charity.

Jamie Singer


Jason Rosenfeld


I have worked for EHAAT for 5 years and consider it a privilege to work for such a highly respected charitable service. I love being out talking to different people with different life experiences. It makes the job so interesting, varied and keeps me enthusiastic.

Karl Cooper


I have been promoting the services of EHAAT since 2014. Although I have never personally needed their service, I have some friends that have required help. I am proud to raise awareness of the Charity and how we rely on the generosity of the public to keep operational.

Kris Storrie


Michael Bud


I joined EHAAT as a canvasser for the lottery 6 years ago, after a career in plastering. My job gives me great satisfaction knowing that we are working towards making the Charity a success through raising awareness of the Flight for Life Lottery.

Mitch Craven


After a career as a stonemason I joined the EHAAT Lottery canvassing team. This is a Charity close to my heart and when we meet the crew we are always reminded by them of the importance that the Lottery brings.

Neil Poole


I've been working for EHAAT for 18 months now and I've always worked in sales roles. I find being a canvasser very rewarding knowing that between us and the public we keep this vital service running.

Philip Parmenter


The best thing about representing EHAAT is the powerful brand coupled with positive feedback received from the general public. I love the job flexibility as it means I can work around supporting my local rugby club and travel.

Robert Bright


Ross Foley


I enjoy working for the Charity because, not only is it less stressful than my previous role as a Surveyor, but it is satisfying knowing that what I do helps to keep the Charity operational.
