Trial Door-to-door campaign

After an extremely successful telephone campaign in 2021 and 2022 which so far has bought in an additional £35k income for the charity over the past 12 months, we needed to re-look at other avenues of income for the Charity.

After a lot of research, talking to other Air Ambulances and local charities, we feel that a short door to door campaign needed to be trailed. We have taken on three extremely experienced canvassers who will be working most days in certain areas.

Here is where our canvassers are:

Leon Kensington (EP 2351):  EX31 Barnstaple, Bickington, Fremington, EX32 Barnstaple, Landkey

Chris Cole  (EP 2420):  PL5 West Park, St Budeaux, Plymouth, PL6 Southway, Plymouth, PL7 Plympton, Plymouth

Tracie Fisher (EP 2421): PL5 West Park, St Budeaux, Plymouth, PL6 Southway, Plymouth, PL7 Plympton, Plymouth

Ted Windermere (EP 1919): Newton Abbot (B2B), Mortenhampstead, Ashburton, Chagford (B2B), Teignmouth, Bishopsteignton Shaldon (B2B)

We will be posting out on all our social media channels which postcodes will be visited by which canvasser.

All our canvassers will be in uniform and had ID badges. You can check who they are on our canvasser page here

If you have any queries or concerns at all, please could you call our lottery team on 01392 466666 Option 3 or email us at at [email protected]

Thank you and good luck if you do decide to join or take out an additional number!

Thank you

Our in-house weekly lottery maintains its success as a regular income stream for the charity due to the commitment and continued support of our members.

The in-house weekly lottery has adapted to may new ways in which to work and devise innovative ideas to rally new and continued support to generate income.

As our second biggest income stream, raising over £2.1 million in 2021 with 76p in ever £1 raised going straight back into the service, the lottery is essential to the charity, but it would not be possible without the support of its invaluable members.

We have a team of canvassers also who are out and about across Devon. Either at venue's like your local supermarket or garden centre to door to door (this is being trialed). So when you do see them please have a chat and talk to them about our weekly lottery and our life-saving charity. For their whereabouts, keep an eye on our social media channels for updates.

Our lottery team has worked hard to adapt the way in which the lottery is operated to ensure the weekly draw continues, as well as establishing other ways for members to pay their membership, whilst also generating new members via the website, email and phone.

We are extremely grateful for the support of all of our lottery members, especially those winners who generously donate back their winnings week on week to the charity.

Corporate Engagement and Lottery Manager Tracy Owen said:

We’re so grateful for the amazing support we’ve been receiving during this tough time. Our lottery team has worked incredibly hard, contacting all of our members to ensure they know how they can pay their membership if their usual way of paying isn’t available and the response we’ve had from our members has been heart-warming. One winner called to say that we needed the money more than she did and so kindly donated it back to us.

Our service continues to operate, with our critical care team responding across the county to save lives. Our team continue to operate both our Exeter and North Devon based aircraft plus our Critical Care Cars 19 hours a day. Our cars are crewed by specialist critical care paramedics, who offer an essential service otherwise not available until a patient reaches hospital.

Our weekly lottery is a really easy way for you to support us with 76p from every £1 entry being donated to the charity and at the same time giving you the chance to win a cash prize every week. Please, join our lottery. Simply download a form or phone 01392 466666 Option 3.

If you need to pay your membership, please phone 01392 466666 Option 3 or email [email protected].
