IMPORTANT UPDATE: CORONAVIRUS
In light of the latest Government advice relating to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak, your local air ambulance would like to provide people with guidance and assurances surrounding its fundraising events calendar.
We would advise supporters who are organising events on the charity’s behalf to follow the advice of Public Health England, not to put themselves or others at any risk and, therefore, postpone events until later in the year. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank our supporters and very much look forward to their continued support in the coming months.
Your local air ambulance has already postponed some of its own upcoming events and is in constant dialogue with The Fundraising Regulator and The Institute of Fundraising to be able to offer the latest advice around event postponements and cancellations. We will continually review and follow guidelines from the Government.
There are still many ways in which supporters can help the charity, if they are able, as we continue to support the NHS through our frontline, lifesaving services. Our critical care teams operate 24/7, 365 days a year whether in the air on board our helicopters or on the roads in our critical care cars. These services continue to need your help and our website offers different ways to support the charity.
As a healthcare charity which receives no government funding, we rely solely on donations from the public and we’d like to say a big thank you to all our supporters at this difficult time – we couldn’t continue our lifesaving missions without you.
We will continually review and follow guidelines from Government with third-party eventers making their own specific announcements, so please check for details.
If anyone has concerns, please do contact our supporter care team on 0300 3045 999
