Jump On Board and Join #TheCrew to help our helicopters

What's #thecrew ?

#TheCrew is an exciting new club for children linked to the Children’s Air Ambulance where children can learn about saving lives, helicopters, medicine, fundraising and how a charity works.  The club offers advice and teaching on community work, volunteering, working as part of a team and supporting good causes which form part of many school curriculums.

Our members get to go to special events where they can see our helicopters, meet our pilots, doctors and paramedics. They might also be lucky enough to go play football with one of the England Lionesses, take an acting class with one of our famous ambassadors, visit a TV or film set or see a show or concert. They might visit a stables where top racing horses are looked after, a fire station or get to see spectacular fireworks*. There are lots of exciting things available to members of #TheCrew.

How does membership work?

Membership of #TheCrew is free for the first year and all we ask after is that children try to raise funds for our vital work. A minimum £25 raised continues the membership but there are even greater rewards on offer to silver and gold members, those that can raise over £100. And there is a great team on hand who can help with tips, materials and organisation.

How was it created?

It was the brainchild of our first ever ambassadors, Anna and Kloe. They heard about our young patients, saw our helicopters and wanted to help raise vital funds, but they didn’t want grown-ups telling them what to do.

So, they created their own fundraising club made for children by children.

What greater gift can you give a child than learning, experience and an achievement in actually helping to save lives?

Join the crew now and see where it takes you.

*All activities are subject to availability and whilst every effort is made to get our members to the events and experiences they want, they cannot be guaranteed at any particular time or date.

The Welcome Pack

The health and safety of a crew member is paramount, therefore, we have robust fundraising guidelines.

Before a child undertakes any activity in their capacity as a crew member, please ensure you have familiarised yourself with the guidelines and that all relevant action is undertaken before the event commences.
