Thank you for choosing to fundraise for the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance. We want to help you make a success of your fundraising activity, whatever that may be.
As a Charity, when we start to fly 24 hours a day this year, our operational costs for the helicopter alone will be £4m every single year. This may seem a tall order, but since we first started to fly in 1994 we have had sufficient support to be able to operate 365 days of the year, something that we hope will continue due to the generosity of people like you!
Every potentially life-saving mission we undertake costs our Charity an average of £2,500. Could you raise money for us this year and help to save the life of someone’s loved one?
put the fun in
What better way to help our life-saving Charity than by getting your friends, family and colleagues together and organising a fundraising event?

SHout about it!
The first step is to let us know that you are raising money for us. Maybe you already have an activity in mind? Great – we look forward to helping you in any way we can.
If not, don’t worry, we have some ‘tried and tested’ ideas that can help you raise money in your school, workplace, organisation or community – just ask us for more information.
Our fundraising team can help in many ways, from giving you some top tips on how to organise an event to giving it a little extra exposure through our website and Social Media.
If you prefer to arrange your event independently, that is absolutely fine too, we’d still like to hear from you though, so that we can say a huge thank you! Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to hearing from you!
Why limit yourself to one activity? There are plenty of ways to maximise the money you can raise.
If you are running a 10k, why not also offer a sweepstake on your finish time, or if you are holding a cake sale, offer teas and coffees for a donation?
There are so many exciting ways to raise money. And remember, you can set up a Just Giving page so that people can donate online.
We want you to feel confident that when raising money for our Charity, making a donation or taking part in any fundraising event that your money is spent wisely and properly.
To give you this reassurance, we are a member of the Fundraising Regulator scheme and as such follow its Code of Fundraising Practice and comply with the key principles embodied in the Code.
Our Charity is committed to high standards and not only do we comply with the Code, we also comply with the laws relating to GDPR and health and safety, and are honest, open and ethical in our fundraising and in communicating where the money goes.
