The Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance has launched a new fundraising initiative.

‘Brew for the Crew’ encourages people to get together with friends, family, colleagues or even the wider community for a catch up, a cuppa, and some lovely treats, while fundraising to help the charity continue its life-saving work across Dorset and Somerset.

The self-led fundraising activity is free to sign up for, with the charity offering a number of free downloadable resources to help promote your event and make it a success.

This includes a free fundraising pack full of tips and ideas, resources such as template posters and invitations, and other materials including cake recipe cards and toppers as well as bunting.

Anyone, at any time, could need the air ambulance team and their specialist skills.

Operational for 19 hours every day of the year, their work is often the difference between life and death.

With no direct funding from the Government or the National Lottery, Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance needs to raise £10m every year, with each mission costing approximately £3,500.

Emma Jones, DSAA’s Fundraising Manager said: “Brew for the Crew is such a lovely, simple way of raising funds for our life-saving charity.

“It’s a fantastic way of getting people together and enjoying a good cuppa and treats!

“Whether you hold your event at work, at home, as a group within the community, or at school, your support will make a huge difference and enable us to be there for patients today, tomorrow and in the future.

“So, gather your friends, family and colleagues, put the kettle on and enjoy yourself whilst supporting our cause.

“Every pound you raise will go towards our life-saving missions, helping us to be there when patients need us the most.”
