#TheCrew

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?

#TheCrew is completely free to join and it’s really easy to sign up. All we ask is that each member tries to raise £25 for each year they are with us. If they do a great job by either raising funds or spreading awareness, they could become a silver or gold member, which comes with additional rewards.  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.

Motorways in the Sky is the exclusive children’s book written by Stacey Turner and illustrated by Claire Spake, to educate families on the inspiring work of the Children’s Air Ambulance.

Find out how this incredible service began, the launch of our very own children’s club #TheCrew and learn interesting facts about our helicopter to help understand how our service works and what it means to so many families across the UK.

    Safeguarding

    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. You can contact us on safeguarding@theairambulanceservice.org.uk or by telephone on 0300 3047 677.
