While we all socially distance during the COVID-19 outbreak, we’re calling on you, our amazing supporters, to take on a virtual fundraising challenge at home.
We hope that our fun challenges enhance your physical and mental wellbeing while you raise vital funds to help our #Ambucopter continue saving lives.
Thank you for your continued support in helping us to provide a life-saving service for people in their greatest hour of need.
take on our
100km base to base challenge
Could you complete 100km to help us save lives?
We’re challenging you to run, walk or cycle 100km to help keep our Ambucopter in the skies of Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire.
help us reach
our next patient
Whilst many of us stay at home, our crew continue to help those who are in need. Could you help us reach our next patient?
Pick from one of the six challenges below:
1,000 steps: Our crew attend approximately 1,000 missions per year.
3,500 steps: Each mission costs approximately £3,500.
10,500 steps: We attend an average of three missions per day, equating approximately £10,500 per day.
21,000 steps: Our crew attend approximately 21 missions over a seven-day period.
45,000 steps: Our crew travel approximately 45 miles to reach a patient.
Choose your amount of steps and think about the time frame in which you’d like to complete your challenge. You could walk, run, or even skip your total amount of steps in the comfort of your own home and garden.
Create your own JustGiving page and invite family and friends to sponsor you. You could even encourage your friends, family or colleagues to get involved and create your own leader board.
If this challenge seems too ambitious, why not share the total steps between members of your household?
Use Skype, FaceTime, Facebook or Zoom to hold your very own virtual activity for your family and friends; whether it be an exercise class, house party, online gig, a storytelling session or if you’re a teacher, an online classroom!
Just set up your own JustGiving page and ask your participants to make a donation. It’s a great way to keep everyone entertained and connected, whilst raising vital funds to help those in need.
take part in
Why not put your knowledge to the test, have some friendly competitive fun and at the same time raise money for your local Air Ambulance?
Download our quiz here, set up your virtual quiz and find out who is the secret “know it all!”
There are lots of great times to host a virtual quiz with friends and family. Why not mark a special occasion such as a birthday or anniversary, or just use it as an excuse to have a get together! You could organise a work’s quiz evening or even one for your local community group.
Don’t forget to ask your participants to make a donation to LNAA via our JustGiving page. By asking for a donation to take part in your quiz, you’ll help keep our iconic helicopter in the sky and our Critical Care Cars on the road.
Good luck and have fun!
great virtual cake-off
Why not have some delicious fun with our Great Virtual Cake-Off? You may not be able to judge each other’s sweet treats on taste, but you can get your scoring cards out and mark on the design, presentation and WOW factor! It’s a great way to spend an afternoon or evening with friends and family, provide some edible talking points and have a good old natter. Plus, you’ll have the added bonus of eating your lovely cake/s all to yourself (after the judging of course!).
HOW TO HOLD YOUR VIRTUAL CAKE-OFF
- Choose a date and time that works best for you and your friends/family to give you the chance to finetune your cake appearance. (Think dress to impress!)
- Pick a theme for your cake-off; whether it be Victoria Sponges, flapjacks, muffins or the ultimate celebration cake, let your imagination run wild.
- Set up your online event, using Zoom or Microsoft Teams, and send out the invites.
- Spread the word and ask your friends, family or colleagues to take part.
- Share the link to our JustGiving page and ask participants to make a donation to LNAA.
- Download our scoring card and get judging!
Letting people know why LNAA means so much to you can really motivate people to sign up and support your event. You can even post the entries on Facebook for some public judging!
Don’t forget to share the link to our JustGiving page so participants know how to donate.
Have fun and get creative! Ready, Set, Cake!

We’ve created a virtual donation bucket so the communities we serve can still help to keep us flying. If everyone gives a little and shares a lot, we can continue to save lives.

Collect as an individual, a school or community group or assemble a team at work, get collecting and see who can raise the most!
If you raise £100 or more, we’ll send you a free LNAA pin badge and teddy bear!
