Could you be a hero for the day?
Why not dress up as your hero for the day during National Air Ambulance Week (NAAW) which this year is between 23 and 29 September?
Who is your hero? It might be Bat Man, Superman or one of our aircrew, a member of the emergency services, or maybe your dad is your hero?
We are able to help with publicity and a few posters. Or if you plan to be a hero for a day why not raise sponsorship? You can apply for your sponsorship pack on line here
or why not create your own page electronically at JustGiving
If you are taking part please let us know and also who is your hero, so we can give you a plug on our Hero list.
Our staff will be leading the way during National Air Ambulance Week (NAAW) by dressing up as their heroes.
If you don’t feel you could dress up as a hero, why not hold your own event? The choice of what to do is yours. You could put on your own fundraising event, dressing up or down at school or your place of work, to simply making a donation. The choice is yours.
By supporting your LOCAL Air Ambulance you will be making a huge difference, as every penny raised will go a long way in helping to save lives within our community.
We are delighted to be working with the other Air Ambulance charities across the country, under the Association of Air Ambulances (AAA) umbrella. This means that although we are all sharing initiatives and working as a collective, we are still very much working for and within the community that we serve.”
