Today sees the start of National Air Ambulance Week (9-15 September) and we would like to take the opportunity to thank those of you who continue to support us in whichever way you can. Each life-saving mission that DSAA attends costs approximately £3,000. The Charity receives no direct funding from the Government or the National Lottery so we rely on your donations to remain operational.

It is fantastic that so many of you support us by holding events on our behalf, taking part in challenges, raising money in sponsorship, offering the ‘gift of time’ or by donating on a regular basis. This amazing support means that we can be there for the patients that need us, so on their behalf, thank you!

Throughout the week, we will be highlighting the difference that your donations make, by sharing inspirational patient stories via our Facebook and Instagram social media pages. If you’re not already following us via these means, you can find us by searching @DSAIRAMBULANCE. Don’t forget to like, comment and share these posts with your friends and family to help raise awareness of our life-saving work.

We also thought how amazing it would be, if we could raise the cost of one life-saving mission via these channels during National Air Ambulance Week. Donations can be made directly on the posts we upload throughout the week. If you do not have a Facebook or Instagram account and would like to make a donation in support of National Air Ambulance Week, you can also do this via the donate form below, or by calling: 01823 669604.

Patients’ lives depend on us being there so please donate what you can. Every penny raised really will make a big difference. Thank you!
