The world of the Sussex Air Ambulance is an exciting one and can be a glimpsed through these fascinating photographs and images, whether these capture take off’s, fundraising efforts by the local community, stalls, our Annual Funky Footwear Friday fundraising day or the crew out on missions.
This gallery area shows you a small percentage of what we, as a charity and life saving operation, do. If you have any photos that you have taken while we have been out and about and you think we could use them, then please send your photos to Kate at [email protected]
We cannot promise we will use all photos due to data protection but we are grateful for any Sussex Air Ambulance footage and we will send you a short email to say thank you.

Our online shop is a quick, easy and simple way to help raise vital funds for the life saving helicopter.
The Air Ambulance Service in Sussex costs around £1.7 million annually to continue to stay airborne. Receiving no funding from the Goverment or The National Lottery the charity is entirely dependent upon the generosity of the public.
Please feel free to browse all of our products or for more information please contact us at [email protected] We aim to deliver all purchases within 3-28 working days.
It was quite a busy year operationally at both bases. The Surrey/Sussex Air Ambulance flew a total of 292 missions and carried 47 patients up to 1st June, this year.Of these, 39% were road traffic crashes and 21% medical emergencies, however whatever the emergency, the skills of our medical teams have made a significant difference to the patients that we have carried, some of whom would not have been alive today, had we not been there.
This is a true testament to the skills of out doctors and critical care paramedics and of course the skill of our pilots who are able to land the helicopter in some of the most difficult places.

This special cycle challenge will take place on Sunday 3 July 2011. Starting and finishing at our base at Dunsfold Park on the Surrey/Sussex border, cyclists will be offered a chance to either cycle 100km (62miles) or 100 miles depending on their fitness and how much of a challenge they are up for.
From the start at Dunsfold Park, cyclists will head around a route that will take in all four of the counties we serve, Surrey, West and East Sussex and Kent, and back to Dunsfold Park (the route will pass via Cranleigh, Charlwood, Lingfield, Tunbridge Wells, Groombridge, Hartfield, Southwater, Loxwood amongst others). At a certain point there will be a split and cyclists can decide then whether they want to take the 100km route or the 100 mile option.
On return to Dunsfold Park there will be a BBQ and drinks available for all competitiors, friends and family to purchase and celebrate their achievement. Radio 2’s Sally Traffic will be coming along to join in the celebrations, hand out goody bags and prizes and generally share the pain of having ridden the Double 100.

For full information on how to join our air ambulance lottery please view our “join lottery” page.
Kent Air Ambulance Trust do not use commercial companies for any fundraising including ‘face to face’ or ‘door to door’ approaches. This is carried out by volunteers and charity staff who receive no commission.
We do use external representatives solely to promote our Air Ambulance Lottery who are paid on a commission only basis. However, the average commission paid is less than 8% which we regard as excellent value and falls well within Gambling Commission Guidelines.
By taking part in our lottery, supporters have a chance of winning £1000 each week and £25,000 if they join our Superdraw.
There are many ways of supporting the charity such as becoming a volunteer, holding an event or by joining our lottery and we would like to reassure members of the public that 100% of any donation given is used to help save lives across the counties of Kent, Surrey and Sussex. Joining our lottery online by clicking here or by calling 01622 833833, will ensure that your entire contribution will go direct to the charity.
