Your loose change makes a huge difference. Did you know that in 2012 we received over £100,000 raised solely through our collection boxes. That equates to over 40 missions which is incredible. Our collection boxes are located in homes, offices and retail outlets across the two counties. They are yellow in colour and clearly display the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance helicopter on the front to ensure that members of the public know who they are donating to.
Once the box is full, sending your donation is really easy.
Returning your money
- Drop the donation into our offices
- Call us and we will arrange a volunteer or member of staff to collect it
- Send us a cheque, made payable to Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance
- Make an online donation
Please make sure you tell us if you have made a payment, so we can thank you.
