Be courageous, take on a daring challenge, push the boundaries and face your fears. Shaving your head, having your legs waxed or attending your next Zoom meeting in your best fancy dress are just some of the many ways you can show your bravery and support The Air Ambulance Service.

You may just want to take on one daring challenge or you could receive suggestions – at the cost of a donation – of take on a number of activities throughout a month or year.

Decide on Your Challenge

Decide what kind of outlandish challenge you’re going to take on – you may have that one thing in mind already or perhaps as part of your fundraising ask you to leave it down to your friends and family to decide your fate, allowing them to suggest the challenge if they make a donation.

Set up a JustGiving page

JustGiving allows people to sponsor you for your challenge without using cash. They can pay securely online knowing that their donation will be going directly towards supporting our lifesaving services.

Promote your challenge

Utilise your social media pages and share amongst your friends and family. Sharing your JustGiving page link will allow others to read your story and make paying their donations quick and easy.
