Getting started with fundraising for Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance

  1. Decide what to do. 
    Decide what fundraising event or activity you’d like to do - have a look at our Fundraise for Us page for ideas.

  2. Set a date and location. 
    Decide when and where it’s going to take place. Remember to consider the weather and have a plan B just in case. If you need to book a venue it’s worth checking availability, capacity, toilet facilities and things like access and parking. If you let them know it is for a charity event, see if the owners will let you use it for free. Is it a public place or private, you may need licences.

  3. Set yourself a fundraising target. 
    Let everyone know how much you are aiming to raise and how the donated money will be helping Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance save lives.

  4. Set up a fundraising page. 
    It only takes a few minutes to set up an online fundraising page that’s quick and easy to share with family, friends and colleagues.
    Plus the money comes directly to us - so no worries about collecting it!

  5. Spread the word. 
    Let everyone know when and where. Why not contact your local newspaper about your event? Send around an email with your online fundraising page link, share the link across your social media channels and leave a sponsorship form in your staff room!

  6. Request fundraising materials. 
    Contact our fundraising team by emailing [email protected] to request balloons, collection boxes/buckets, posters, t-shirts/vests, leaflets and more.

  7. Send us your money. 
    For details on how to get your donations to us please see our Ways to donate page.
