We give our all
Magpas Air Ambulance is called out to people in the most serious medical emergencies as the advanced care and treatments our medical team provide can offer patients the best chance of survival and recovery. Sadly, despite the very best efforts of our team and the other emergency services, some patients experience injury or illness that they cannot survive. Many people take comfort in knowing that our advanced care (which can include anaesthesia and strong pain relief) was available to their loved one and wish to thank our medical team by making a donation or fundraising for us. We are often contacted by the family and friends of a patient who has passed away, usually very unexpectedly.
Would you like to make a donation?
Making a donation in memory of your loved one is a thoughtful way to commemorate their life and help save others’ lives. If you would like to hold a collection at a funeral we can arrange for collection tins to be available. Please get in touch with our fundraising team at [email protected] who would be pleased to assist.
Fundraising for Magpas Air Ambulance can create a lasting legacy in your loved one’s name. By taking on a challenge or organising an event, you can fund our lifesaving missions to help other people in serious medical emergencies. Visit our How to Fundraise page or call our Fundraising team on 01480 371060.
“I’m raising money for Magpas Air Ambulance because they tried to save my dad”
David’s father, Greg, passed away in 2015 following a cardiac arrest which was a big shock to David and his family. He felt something good had to come from his loss and took on four fundraising challenges in 2016 to raise money for Magpas Air Ambulance. He and his friends took part in a New Year’s Day Swim, completed the Three Peaks Challenge, sky dived from 12,000 feet, and ran a half marathon in Greg’s memory. “I wanted to be able to fund missions to save someone else’s life. Magpas Air Ambulance is a truly great cause and with my friends we’ve managed to raise over £5,000.”
