Whether you're flying solo or fundraising as part of a team, we can support you with all the ideas and tools you need on your journey.

We can't do it without you

Our supporters are vital to keeping our helicopter in the air and our rapid response vehicles on the ground, saving lives across the East of England 24/7.

On average, it costs £3,000 to activate our helicopter and we respond to four emergencies each day.

From the change dropped into the collection tins to the daring challenge and event fundraisers—every penny you raise makes a huge difference to the service we can offer.

Community fundraising

We are so grateful to receive support from so many local communities. Rally up your neighbours and community groups and find a creative way to show your support—host a tractor run or a live music concert; dedicate your impressive Christmas lights display to the charity; or run a bucket collection on the village high street. The possibilities are endless!
