Devon Air Ambulance provides life saving emergency care because of the amazing support we receive from our local communities. You make this possible and we want to say Thank You.

From requesting donations instead of gifts for special occasions, in-memory donations, making and selling face coverings, or undertaking a physical challenge, to fundraising at work or running a quiz, it's thanks to your efforts that our crews can keep responding. 

Your support makes a difference

Your support allowed us to undertake 1507 missions in 2020. Every fundraising effort made by our supporters is a gift towards critical care for our patients. 

Some of the many generous gestures made towards supporting our service include donations in lieu of Christmas cards, bake sales, football sweepstakes, fundraising by school children on a mufti day, village shindigs, and gaming!

There are as many reasons why our supporters choose to fundraise for us as there are supporters, and we are grateful to each one.

Grateful for the many ways you support us

Whether running a fundraising event, playing our weekly charity lottery, remembering us in your will, or donating through regular giving - however you choose to give, you are helping to save lives. Thank You
