Frequently asked questions

Is there a minimum fundraising target to take part?

Your school or youth organisation can set its own target based on what you feel is reasonable. If you meet that target you can always change it and aim to raise more. It is entirely up to you!

How can we fundraise?

You could encourage a donation for every child taking part in your challenge, or you can download a sponsorship form that your children could use to secure donations from family and friends. You can find more information via our Mini Miles for Missions 2.5 mile challenge guide.

How can we pay in our donations?

Once you have registered we will send you details on how to set up a secure online fundraising page which you can use to pay in donations or share with parents, families and friends. Alternatively, you can pay in your life-saving fundraising in a number of ways. Please see below for more options.

Why do we need to fundraise for London’s Air Ambulance Charity?

Not everyone knows that we are a charity that relies almost entirely on the support of the people who live, work and travel through London. It costs around £10m a year for us to provide our life-saving service. Since 1989, schools have played a vital role in helping us reach our fundraising targets, with pupils, parents, families and teachers using their imagination, creativity and enthusiasm to help raise the money we need to keep our helicopters flying.

You can email our dedicated Community Fundraising Team at [email protected] and we will get back to you as soon as we can, usually within 24 hours. If it is an urgent enquiry then you can call 0203 023 3300.
