Midlands Air Ambulance Charity has attended more than 63,000 missions since it launched in 1991 and saved thousands of lives.

Here's a great opportunity to help support the vital pre-hospital service and you could win a jackpot prize of £3,000 for just £1 (or treat yourself and family and friends to a few) in the Air30 Rapid Response Raffle.

There are also £500, £50 and £25 prizes up for grabs. And one lucky winner will receive a family pass (for up to five people) to visit one of Midlands Air Ambulance Charity's three operational airbases at Tattenhill, near Burton-on-Trent, Strensham Services on the M5, and Cosford, near Shifnal.

During the past year, donations to the air ambulance, like many other charities, have reduced significantly as a result of Covid as fundraising events have been cancelled and charity shops shut. At the same time air ambulance call outs have increased by 25%.

So put your hand in your pocket, and help support the Air30 Rapid Response Raffle and perhaps win a prize at the same time.

How will my £1 raffle donation help?

Midlands Air Ambulance Charity's Air30 Rapid Response Raffle not only gives players the chance to win cash prizes, but all money raised will also directly help fund future lifesaving missions and enable the aircrew to attend and treat some of the Midlands most critically ill and injured patients.

The charity frequently attends incidents in Staffordshire, including road traffic collisions, cardiac arrests and sporting injuries.

Emma Gray, chief operating officer for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity said: “With the Rapid Response Raffle, we are returning to a more traditional way of fundraising to commemorate our 30th anniversary year.

“The raffle is a great way for the communities we serve to show their support, get involved and potentially win some cash.”
