Leave a Gift in your Will


One in ten missions is funded by a legacy

To leave a gift in your will ensures the future of a vital service to the community. A significant amount of donations come to us from our incredible supporters who leave a legacy in their will.

Essex & Herts Air Ambulance enables pre-hospital care doctors and critical care paramedics to be rushed to the scene of an incident. Their life-saving support equipment and expertise provides advanced clinical care that is normally only found in Emergency Departments.

Once stabilised, a patient is taken by air or land to the most appropriate hospital for their needs. Legacy giving is a way of supporting your local air ambulance. It is a wonderful gift that does not affect you in your lifetime. When you leave a gift in your will to a charity the gift is exempt from Inheritance Tax and can reduce the overall tax liability to an estate.

We hope that you will consider leaving a gift to Essex & Herts Air Ambulance.

Leave a gift in your will. It will never be forgotten because it could help save a life.

“If it wasn’t for the air ambulance air crew I would not be here today; a thought that does not bear thinking about. I’ll never be able to repay the team that saved my life but I hope that by sharing my story I will encourage you to support this incredibly worthy charity.”

John Boswell from Chelmsford
