Did you know that in less time than it takes to hard boil an egg we can be at a seriously injured persons side delivering life-saving care.  

Our teams aim to be airborne within 4 minutes of receiving a call, and can reach anywhere in London within 11 minutes. When every second counts, our ability to respond rapidly is critical.                                

Easter is a favourite time in our supporter’s fundraising calendar - not surprising given its link to all things chocolate! Unfortunately this year will be a little different for us all, as Lockdown and social distancing measures continue through the Easter weekend.

But we can still keep our families and younger ones entertained and engaged, while helping to replace some of the vital funds we have lost due to the pandemic.

We are inviting all our eggceptional supporters, young, old and in-between, to support us this Easter by simply:

  1. Using your imagination to create your very own Eggicopter over the Easter Weekend
  2. Share your creation with friends and family on social media
  3. Donate the cost of a chocolate Easter Egg to help us keep our helicopter flying using the DONATE button at the bottom of this page (we suggest £3 or £5 but any amount will be greatly appreciated)

Below are some eggsamples. Feel free to poach these ideas or you may have some of your own or visit here for inspiration and egg decorating tips

Whether it’s an animal, movie or celebrity themed EggiCopter (‘Egg Sheeran’ anyone), a knitted replica of our iconic red helicopter (downloadable pattern below) or an Eggicopter based on you or your family, your creation is limited only by your imagination.

Create your EggiCopter, let it fly on social media and help us raise life-saving funds.
