Air Ambulance Week

Help us turn Wiltshire yellow and green in 2019!

Individuals, community groups, schools, colleges and businesses are being challenged to do something fun during National Air Ambulance Week (9-15 September) by incorporating the colours yellow and green.

We’ve chosen the theme of yellow and green to reflect the colours of our Bell 429 helicopter and our Rapid Response Vehicle. Whether you’re doing this on your own, with family or friends or taking part with your work colleagues, there are plenty of ways to get involved.

All the funds raised will help to keep Wiltshire Air Ambulance flying and saving lives. We are a charity and rely on donations to keep our essential service operational. We are not funded directly by the Government and receive no National Lottery grants.

There are plenty of others ways to take part:

  • Hold a raffle with yellow and green prizes
  • Guess the number of yellow and green sweets in a jar
  • Host a yellow and/or green themed quiz in your workplace
  • Maybe even ask your work place or school to change their logo colours to yellow and green for the day!

These are just some of the ways you can show your support for Wiltshire Air Ambulance, but we’re all ears to other suggestions.

All you need to know about Air Ambulance Week 2019!

  • What is 'Air Ambulance Week'?

    It's a seven-day period every year where Air Ambulance charities across the country promote the work undertaken locally but also on a national scale. The first nationally-coordinated Air Ambulance Week was held in 2012 and as the years have passed, the annual celebratory week has helped to make many more people aware of the work of UK air ambulances, including Wiltshire Air Ambulance.

  • Why 'Yellow and Green in 2019'?

    Yellow and Green are our charity's colours! Our Bell 429 helicopter and RRV (Rapid Response Vehicle) is decked out in our colours and now we want you to do likewise for Air Ambulance Week 2019.

  • How do I let you know what I'm doing?

    Simply get in touch with our events co-ordinator Kenresa if you're planning something for Air Ambulance Week 2019. Drop her an email to kenresa@wiltshireairambulance.co.uk. Alternatively fill in the form at the bottom of this page.

  • How much do I need to raise?

    There's no minimum amount. We just ask that you raise as much as you can for Wiltshire Air Ambulance through your Yellow and Green activities.

Tell us what you're doing

Share with us how you are turning your part of Wiltshire yellow and green. If your community, workplace or school are getting involved, tell us what you are doing.
