Kent Air Ambulance Trust
Registered Charity serving Kent, the South East and surrounding areas.
The Kent Air Ambulance Trust was established in 1989 providing a Helicopter Emergency Medical Service relieving sick and injured people in and around Kent and the wider South East.
Kent Air Ambulance has highly trained medical staff and pilots providing an invaluable, life saving service which is available to every person living, working or travelling through Kent every day. Swift responses to 999 calls saves lives. Flying fast, the Kent Air Ambulance can deliver its skilled team of Doctors and critical care paramedics to anywhere in Kent within 15 minutes flying time. A fraction of the time that a land ambulance may take. Where ever they land the Kent Air Ambulance is never more than 7 minutes away from a receiving A & E Hospital.
Flying every day of the year with an average of 3 missions a day, the Marden base, near to Maidstone costs £1.7 million each year and is almost entirely funded by donations from individuals, groups, clubs, businesses, and companies in and around Kent. The Air Ambulance does not receive any funding from the National Lottery and is therefore dependant on the continuing support of the local community.
The Kent Air Ambulance organises fund raising events through out the year and you can find out how to get involved by visiting their website, alternatively if you would like to make a donation then you can do so by clicking here.
If you want to organise your own event then the Kent Air Ambulance can help with promotion of the event, including posters and banners. branded sealed collection boxes or buckets, a signed authority to Fundraise, and where appropriate they can provide a representative from the Trust to attend your event. Following your event its really important to the Kent Air Ambulance that they thank all their supporters properly, that could be in the form of a representative attending a cheque presentation at your location or their base in Marden.
