Air Ambulance Week is a national campaign, which is aimed at highlighting the work undertaken by the 21 UK air ambulance charities.

We have a range of events and activities to mark this special yearly event, including our very popular Brew with the Crew and an exclusive chance to go 'behind the scenes' at WAA HQ!



Charity's emergency training helps Maxi, 11, save his grandfather

The importance of Wiltshire Air Ambulance’s Emergency Awareness Training programme has been demonstrated after 11-year-old Maxi Bastable came to the rescue of his choking grandfather.

Maxi was taught lifesaving skills by the charity at his school, Westonbirt Prep in Tetbury last year.

Join us for our very first Market Day

On Friday 8 September, we will be joined by a collection of handpicked local traders, who will be selling a range of local produce ranging from jewellery, food & drink and items for children. This will also be the first chance for you to purchase our much-loved Christmas cards.


Wiltshire Air Ambulance volunteer Hilary Fleming began fundraising for the charity in an obscure way in 2021.

The idea came about after “lockdown madness”, with the country still enveloped in the Coronavirus pandemic. 

Hilary decided she would embark on her daily walk wearing a different hat, asking for donations to Wiltshire Air Ambulance along the way.

Calling all schools

We're urging you to enjoy a non-school uniform day to support your local air ambulance. Schoolchildren can don yellow and green clothes – the same colour as the Wiltshire Air Ambulance helicopter – for a suggested £1 donation.

If your school would like to get involved, please get in touch.
