Donate your Birthday
It costs over £16.6M a year to sustain our world-leading, cutting edge, innovative service and amazingly 87% is donated and raised by the people of Kent, Surrey and Sussex. It costs £45K per day to provide our service.

It’s thanks to all those people who support the air ambulance that it was there for us when our family needed it. I am just so grateful.
