Will you play your part to help critically ill patients at scene?

When ‘You Run, We Fly!’

Every day in Northern Ireland, 2 people need the services of the Air Ambulance Medical Team. It could be a road traffic collision, fall from a height, farm accident, sports incident or sudden cardiac arrest to name a few. Whatever the critical situation, the air ambulance doctor and paramedic are airborne in minutes. At scene they provide medical care that is usually only available when the patient reaches hospital and it can be the difference between life and death.

With your help, we can bring the hospital to the patient in minutes.

Sign up and raise funds to save lives, brains and limbs.

Cillian was just 4 when he was hit by a motorbike when crossing the road.  He suffered a catalogue of injuries and could have died, but due to the care he received at scene and afterwards in hospital, he has made a remarkable recovery.


Your support means the world to us!

aani-infographic.jpgAir Ambulance NI aspires to raise £2 million each year, or about £5,500 per day.  It’s a big figure but if everyone does a little to support air ambulance, the service will be here for generations to come. 

The funds you raise could contribute to a number of costs including a flight suit for the medical team, fuel for the aircraft, maintenance at the airbase or aviation training. 

All fundraising means the service can reach the next patient in need.
