Hold a cuppa or two for the air ambulance crew

Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance (DSAA) has launched its latest fundraising initiative, Brew for the Crew.’

Brew for the Crew is a self-led, fun, corporate and community fundraising activity which anyone can get involved with. It is an opportunity to get friends, family, colleagues, or even the wider community together for a catchup, a good old cup of brew and some lovely treats, while fundraising to help the charity continue saving lives across Dorset and Somerset.

It is free to sign up and by doing so you will get everything you need to promote your event and make it a success as the charity has created a number of downloadable resources to help.

Anyone, at any time, could need the air ambulance team and their specialist skills. Operational for 19 hours every day of the year, their work is often the difference between life and death.

With no direct funding from the Government or the National Lottery, Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance needs to raise £10m every year, with each mission costing approximately £3,500.

Emma Jones, DSAA’s Fundraising Manager, said: “Brew for the Crew is such a lovely, simple way of raising funds for our life-saving charity. It’s a fantastic way of getting people together and enjoying a good cuppa and treats!

“Whether people hold an event at work, at home, as a group within the community, or at school, their support will make a huge difference and enable us to be there for patients today, tomorrow and in the future.”
