Could you be one of Cornwall Air Ambulance’s ten Appeal supporting schools?
We’re asking ten local schools to host a non-uniform day this January and February, to help raise over £500 per school!
Your donations will go towards the New Heli Appeal – we urgently need to raise £2.5m to bring a new helicopter to Cornwall by April 2020.
Your school can help save more time and more lives.
To become one of Cornwall Air Ambulance’s Appeal schools, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01637 889926.
This year alone Cornwall Air Ambulance has flown more than 800 missions throughout the county, yet we rely on your donations to keep saving lives.
Every year we airlift around 80 children, and in the future we will rely on the children of today to fund the lifesaving flights of tomorrow. Therefore, we are committed to inspiring young people to become our future fundraisers.
Many schools, groups, churches and clubs support us in a variety of ways to keep the air ambulance flying.
Our fundraisers enjoy talking to groups about Cornwall Air Ambulance. We can visit your meeting place or you are welcome to book a visit to the airbase so that your members can see the helicopter first hand.
Talks are fun, informative and inspiring and, for younger groups, we bring along flying suits and helmets for the children to try on.
Charity of the Year
Having your local air ambulance as your “Charity of the Year” will bring your community together to support a hugely worthy cause, while having fun and making friends through fundraising experiences.
You will be supported by an experienced fundraising team who can guide you at every stage to make the most out of the close partnership. We’ll thank you for your incredible support through our ‘High Flyers of the Month’ in each monthly e-newsletter, on social media and in our supporter newsletter, Airtime.
It’s nice to know where your donations are going. You may like to fundraise towards a specific goal such as a piece of lifesaving equipment for our aircraft, a new pair of paramedic shoes or help towards a stretcher for our new helicopter! Get in touch with us and we can tell you what your donations could go towards.
Hold an Event in Aid of Cornwall Air Ambulance
We have collection buckets, literature and inexpensive goodies to support your group or school when they hold events such as coffee mornings in aid of the charity.

Cornwall Air Ambulance would struggle to operate without the hard work, generosity and enthusiasm of our volunteers.
Could your members or pupils donate their time volunteering at an event or supermarket bag pack? It can be a great bonding activity and is always fun.
If your school or group would like to support Cornwall Air Ambulance, please speak to a member of the fundraising team by calling 01637 889 926 or email enquiries.
