Lights for flights

Thank you to everyone who took part and supported us last year. We can’t fly without you!”

Lights for Flights 2020 – Illuminate your home this Christmas

It couldn’t be easier to take part in our Lights for Flights fundraising initiative. All you need to do is decorate your home or work place inside or outside with festive Christmas lights, and ask us for a collection tin and festive banner. You can leave this outside your house so that people can drop donations – and admiration – in!

Please do send in your photos for us to share and maybe one of our EHAAT elves will drop by to see your lights and thank you in December!

What’s more, participating will not only bring Christmas cheer and community spirit to your local area, but will help to raise vital funds for your local air ambulance!
