Host a coffee morning for your local air ambulance
and help save a life

Brew. Bake. Be a lifesaver.

Sign up to host a coffee morning and raise vital funds for your local air ambulance charity.

The best part? You can host your very own Cuppa for your Crew at a time that brews perfectly with your schedule. Whether it’s the first light of a weekday morning with steamy espressos, a laid-back weekend afternoon with slices of cake and a latte fun. Or a cosy evening with friends and a glass of fizz, every sip and nibble will help us save more lives.

It costs over £51k a day to run our lifesaving service and 88% of that is funded by people like you. So, dust off your apron, whisk up some treats and get ready to sprinkle some joy!

FAQs

How do I host a KSS coffee morning?

You can hold your event whenever and however you like, all you need to do is decide where you would like to hold it and when suits you best.  Then you can come together with friends, family or colleagues and enjoy a cuppa for your crew and a slice of something nice.

Once you signed up you’ll receive a free fundraising pack including invitations, cake flags, balloons, an event poster and even a game. We also have some digital resources available should you want to be more efficient and you can download and print at your convenience.

A coffee morning is about coming together with friends, family or colleagues and is about enjoying a chat over a drink and some food, you may even have a few games to play, all while raising money to help your local air ambulance be there when there is a life or death call.

As a host you can decide what you want your event to be – whether it is a simple bake sale at work or a garden party and cream tea. However, you choose to host this year every penny will help us to keep flying and saving lives.

We would advise as a best practice that any baked goods are labelled with any dietary information including ingredients. You will find some cake flags included in your pack to help. For more information please visit the Food Standards Agency (FSA) website.

We find it works well to keep your cakes and savoury sweets at a fairly similar suggested donation amount.

 

Make sure you’ve got a collection pot within easy reach for people to pop their money in! Alternatively, you may just want your guests to donate on arrival and then they can help themselves to a cuppa and a cake.

 

You might also have ideas about others ways to raise funds, perhaps a raffle or asking your guests to take part in a sweepstake game where they can make a donation for a guess – maybe a ‘guess the weight of the cake game’. We have included a game in your pack which you can invite guests to play

 

Don’t forget to ask guests to Gift Aid their donations where possible – you will have a form in your fundraising pack for guests to complete (it’s important they complete this themselves). You can find out more about this here.

 

You can also set up a Justgiving page here and share with people that can’t attend. They may still want to support you.

Once you’ve raised a cuppa for your crew, you can pay in your fundraising money through a number of simple steps💰: via our website at aakss.org.uk/donate – remember to tell us that this is money from your coffee morning

Call us on 01634 471900 to pay by card

Post a cheque payable to KSS – remember to enclose details of your fundraising so that we know who it’s from, together with any donation or gift aid forms

You can pay directly into our bank – please use your name or supporter number (our team can provide this) as a reference: NatWest • Sort code: 60-17-36 • Account: 78218136
