How to support us this christmas

HELP US GIVE LIFESAVING CARE THIS CHRISTMAS

Our doctors, paramedics, pilots and dispatch assistants work 365 days a year to protect our community. Rather than unwrapping presents or eating turkey on Christmas Day, they’ll be ready to provide lifesaving care when the worst happens.

By supporting us this Christmas, you’ll be helping bring hospital-level treatment to critically ill and injured patients in need.

CHRISTMAS SHOP

SUPPORT OUR VIRTUAL BUCKET COLLECTION

With some bucket collections still unable to go ahead, we have decided to hold a virtual bucket collection this Christmas. It’s a chance for everybody to get involved with helping us raise vital funds this festive season.

Please pop whatever you are able to spare in our virtual bucket – every penny donated makes a huge difference to our lifesaving service. Or, why not set up your own virtual bucket collection to raise money for us? Perhaps you would like to sing carols for your friends and family or bake some tasty festive treats for them to enjoy in exchange for a donation to your virtual bucket!

SHARE A MEMORY

Whether it’s your first Christmas since a loved one passed, or you lost someone many years ago, Christmas can be a difficult time. With our tribute page, you can remember your loved one this Christmas by sharing your thoughts, photos and memories.

CORPORATE FUNDRAISING AT CHRISTMAS

Christmas is a great time to come together but if that isn’t possible, or your teams are working remotely, our flexible festive fundraising ideas will be perfect in the office or over Zoom.

  • Create an Elfie Selfie competition in return for a small donation and share the photos with us on social media.
  • Host a classic Christmas jumper day!
  • Create a reverse advent and make a difference to our service. Advent days could include volunteering, donating clothes to our clothing banks, making a donation or signing up to our e-Newsletter.
  • If all else fails, food and drink are always welcomed at Christmas – celebrate by sending your team a food or drinks taster kit and share the experience online together.
