Today we’ve launched our brand new fundraising initiative, ‘Brew for the Crew’ and we’d love you to get involved.

The Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance crew enjoying a cuppa and cake.

Brew for the Crew is a self-led, fun, corporate and community fundraising activity which anyone can get involved with. It’s an opportunity to get friends, family, colleagues, or even the wider community together for a catchup, a good old cup of brew and some lovely treats, whilst fundraising to help us continue saving lives across Dorset and Somerset.

It’s free to sign up! By doing so you’ll get everything you need to promote your event and make it a success as we have created a number of downloadable resources to help. You’ll get access to a fundraising pack full of tips and ideas, resources such as template posters and invitations and other materials such as cake recipe cards, cake toppers and bunting!

Anyone, at any time, could need the specialist critical care skills of our team. Operational for 19 hours every day, their work is often the difference between life and death. With no direct funding from the Government or the National Lottery, we need to raise £10m every year, with each mission costing approximately £3,500. This new initiative, is a great and easy way of you helping us to achieve this.

Brew for the Crew is such a lovely, simple way of raising funds for our life-saving charity. It’s a fantastic way of getting people together and enjoying a good cuppa and treats! Whether you hold your event at work, at home, as a group within the community, or at school, your support will make a huge difference and enable us to be there for patients today, tomorrow and in the future. So, gather your friends, family and colleagues, put the kettle on and enjoy yourself whilst supporting our cause. Every pound you raise will go towards our life-saving missions, helping us to be there when patients need us the most.
