How to check if our fundraisers are legitimate Our team of professional fundraisers are currently visiting homes in Buckinghamshire, Berkshire and Oxfordshire to ask supporters to play our Weekly Lottery via Direct Debit. They may also be found in shopping centres or other events. This is an effective way of raising awareness and money to enable us to keep saving lives. We occasionally receive calls checking that the people who call are legitimately fundraising for Thames Valley Air Ambulance. So, here are some tips for you to check. All our fundraisers will be wearing a Thames Valley Air Ambulance jacket or polo shirt with our logo on. They will have an ID badge with their photo. They will never ask for cash. Anyone who does is not legitimate. The locations of where our fundraisers are active are on our website. Our fundraisers use an electronic tablet to capture and transfer personal data securely. It stores no data and provides a high level of security for the supporter. All our fundraisers sign up to a Charter that ensures people are treated fairly and courteously and are regulated by the Gambling Commission. Check out our Door-to-Door fundraising FAQs here. If you have any concerns or questions, please call us on 0300 999 0135 or email us on [email protected] It’s ok to ask the fundraiser to call back to give you time to check with us.
