Ideas for your New Year’s Resolution – 2020

5 December 2019

The team at Essex & Herts Air Ambulance (EHAAT) have put together a few ideas for your New Year’s Resolution – hopefully one you will keep!

1. Become a Volunteer with EHAAT

There are so many ways you can give a little (or a lot) of your time to support the Charity and make a life-saving difference. You can raise awareness and funds through helping out at fundraising events and bucket collections or by using your professional skills in our offices. As part of the Volunteer Team, you get a monthly newsletter from the Charity and are invited to exclusive events.

Visit the Volunteer page to find out how to get involved.

2. Take part in Trek 2020 – Sahara Desert

This November, our fundraising trek takes us to Africa. Complete five days and 50km of trekking through the desert, scaling sand dunes and camping under the stars. What a great way to support your local life-saving charity!

A minimum fundraising target of £2,020 is required to take part in this adventure. We will be there to help you every step of the way with ideas and advice on how to reach this target and support your local life-saving charity. Why not ask your employer to match fund you?

3. Join the Flight for Life Lottery

In 2019, 18 lucky members won on our Superdraw! For just £2 a week, this could be you!

Alternatively, you can pay £1 a week. This enters you in the draw to win one of fourteen prizes, with £1,000 being the biggest prize.

Sign up to the Flight for Life Lottery here.

4. Host your own Fundraising Event

Without access to National Lottery funding and with limited support from the Government, we rely solely on the support of the people of Essex and Hertfordshire. It is your fundraising efforts and donations that keep us operational.

The possibilities are endless when it comes to fundraising. Some supporters do extreme things like a sponsored head shave, whereas others host dress down days at work. We love hearing the new ideas that you come up with.

Our fundraising page has all the information you need to get started. If you need more information, call the Fundraising Office and a member of the team will be more than happy to talk to you.

5. Sign up for a regular donation

Your donation can change lives – we are incredibly grateful for whatever you feel you can afford. By continuing to give on a regular basis, you can help secure the future of Essex & Herts Air Ambulance, enabling us to carry on providing our life-saving service.
