Air Ambulance Appeal

Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air AmbulanceAir Ambulance Appeal

Our Lions Air Ambulance Night Flying Appeal has raised an incredible amount of money totalling £250,000 to help ensure the Kent Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance (KSSAA) can fly during the hours of darkness, but we still need to raise more!

We recently launched an appeal for a new item of diagnostic equipment required by KSSAA crew and we are delighted to report that we have raised more than £30,000 towards this. However, we urgently need to raise an additional £4,000 to cover the cost of the specialist equipment.

It will help crews to identify any serious medical complications a patient may have because of injury, therefore speeding up the diagnostic and treatment process. With your support we will be able to fund this state-of-the art technology and help to save more lives.

In 2016 we funded the purchase of two fast response cars for crews to use when it is not possible for the helicopters to fly. The cars now bear the Lions logo to emphasise our ongoing partnership with the KSSAA. We have also approved funding for further night vision googles which will use the remainder of the funds raised to support the night flying programme. 

By giving something today you will truly be making a difference – without public support, the air ambulance simply could not continue giving life-saving care, 24 hours a day. Any surplus funds raised through this campaign will go towards the next Lions project for the Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance Trust.
