Experience the best of Mote Park after dark on our 2.5 or 5 mile loop around the stunning Maidstone park. Mote park is one of our approved night landing sites, a perfect venue to celebrate 10 years of night flights.

We’re proud to have been the first air ambulance in the UK to fly 24 hours a day. When there’s a life-or-death call, we bring specialised doctors, paramedics and treatment to the scene, fast. And we don’t stop. 24/7, 365 days a year. But without your support, our crew can’t get off the ground.

Every step you take and every pound you raise on our sponsored walk ensures our critical care teams can be there when life-threatening emergencies happen. So, grab your friends and have an unforgettable night supporting your amazing local air ambulance.


Let’s make it a night to remember! Join us for Heli Hike at Night

Last year, nearly 800 people in Kent relied on our swift care and expertise. From road collisions to cardiac arrests and strokes. When there’s a life-or-death call, we bring specialised doctors, paramedics and treatment to the scene, fast. And we don’t stop. 24/7, 365 days a year.
