How much money was donated to local Air Ambulance charities through funeral-notices.co.uk in 2020?

Until we began offering up the option to add an online donations service to our notices, I don’t think I ever once thought about the incredible work done by Air Ambulance charities up and down the UK. According to Air Ambulances UK, every day air ambulance charities across the UK collectively undertake around 70 lifesaving missions; that’s around 25,000 a year.

But I seem to be in the minority in my knowledge of the Air Ambulance charities, as we had 904 donations across 18 different Air Ambulance charities totalling £24,520. Plus, because we offer the ability to register your donation for Gift Aid, the charities claimed an extra £4,574 that they might not have got if the money was left in a collection plate.

Air Ambulances are not like regular Ambulances; your local NHS Trust will be able to use Government funding to keep their road bound ambulances driving, but Air Ambulances are independent and rely heavily on the generosity of people like you and I. For example, the Wales Air Ambulance team quote that every year they need to raise £8 million in order to continue their life-saving work.

Before we look at the top five Air Ambulance charities according to the amount of money donated through funeral-notices.co.uk in 2020, I want to take a moment to say THANK YOU! All we do is offer up the platform, but it is down to all of you who visit, share on social media, and donate in memory of your loved ones that we can continue to share feel-good articles like this one.

On behalf of ourselves and all of these charities, we thank you.
