In line with sectors of our society re-opening under government supervision, we have been instructed by the Government, The Fundraising Regulator and the Chartered Institute of Fundraising, that we can re-commence fundraising activities in order to support the work we do in our community.

At Thames Valley Air Ambulance, all of our fundraising activities will be undertaken in line with Government risk assessments, and our fundraisers have undertaken extra training to ensure the safety of both themselves and the general public. All our fundraisers will be wearing PPE, and social distancing to ensure a contactless interaction.

During the pandemic we have kept our services functioning, taking into account the extra safety measures to protect all involved, and proudly serving those in need in our community. We look forward to extending this to our fundraising activities.

All fundraising activities will be kept under regular review, and should the need arise, we will amend our work as required.


The Thames Valley Air Ambulance Lottery is a fun way to give regularly to support our vital services.

You’ll be in with a chance of winning the top prize of £1,000, every week! As well as a second prize of £250 and ten prizes of £25 in our weekly draw.

By playing the lottery every week, you’ll be making a regular donation, knowing it’s coming, we can plan for the future and help more patients in the years ahead.

Last year our lottery raised approximately £3.7m

Based on the number of chances in our weekly draw you have approximately a 1:6000 chance of winning the £1,000 jackpot.

Each lottery ticket costs £1, and you can purchase more than one ticket for each draw. You can also set things up to automatically purchase a set number of tickets for each week – which is what most of our players do.

If you’ve become one of our lottery winners, the money should be transfered into your account within five days of the draw results being published, but if you want to confirm that you are a winner, or have any other questions please do get in touch.

Yes, we do. We have a team of professional fundraisers who go door-to-door asking if residents would like to support Thames Valley Air Ambulance by setting up a Direct Debit to play our lottery.
