We save hundreds of lives each year, but it wouldn’t be possible without the support of people like you. Fundraising events are what keep our helicopters in the skies, so do something silly, something daring - anything you do can have an incredible impact.

Please note it is your responsibilty to ensure that any fundraising event you organise complies with health and safety regulations and stays within the law.

Money for nothing - why not sign up to Savoo?
We’re excited to announce we're working with Savoo Search, Save and Raise, and we’d like to introduce you to this innovative way of donating. Simply use Savoo Search as your default search engine (the same way as you would your current search engine) and Savoo will donate 1p for every search you make. If you’re looking to do some online shopping and want to get a great deal, Savoo also has thousands of voucher codes and deals that will help you save money and they will donate to Devon Air Ambulance at the same time.
Create your own online giving page
If you are planning on doing a sponsored event then online giving couldn’t be easier. It’s simple and secure for people to donate without the hassle of printed paperwork or collecting your pledges. To spread the message and encourage everyone to sponsor you just can share your page using social media and email. We will be happy to share your page via our social media too.
You can find us on both Just Giving and Virgin Giving.
If you go to our Just Giving page you will see in the top right of the screen an orange 'Fundraise for us' button, click that and you can then create your own page.
If you go to the Virgin Giving page you can select the kind of challenge you are doing, input your details and select Devon Air Ambulance Trust as your chosen charity.
Whilst Just Giving and Virgin Giving work in similar ways they each have their own T&C's which can be found on their websites;
Remember to always keep your supporters engaged by keeping them informed of how your training and fundraising is going and keep your page updated with photos.
If you would also like some printed sponsor forms then please complete our events form above and select sponsor forms from the list at the bottom.
Lots of little donations add up to a lot and we can prove it. In 2016 the loose change left in our little red collection boxes added up to over £175,000. Amazing, isn’t it? We have almost 5,000 red collection boxes around the county, in all sorts of places.
