Donate now In 2018 it cost £7.5 million to keep Devon's Air Ambulances flying. As an independent charity that doesn't depend on any external funding, we are able to attend our patients only because of the support of our lottery players, regular donors, those who remember us in their wills, those who shop with us or donate to our shops, those who fundraise for us or participate in fundraising events, and those who pop spare change into our collection boxes. Every contribution truly does make a difference to our patients. There are all sorts of ways to financially support your Air Ambulances. Below are a few.
