Vote for Us!

Midlands Air Ambulance Charity has applied for the NatWest Community Force Grant!

It is a new initiative which supports projects and charities that make a real difference in local communities.

The public get to decide who is successful in receiving the £6000 grant and supporters have until October 24th to vote online!

The three projects with the most votes in each Community Force Area will win awards.

Midlands Air Ambulance is responsible for funding and operating three helicopters and needs £6 million pounds every year to run this life saving service.

The charity receives no government or national lottery funding and responds to on average, 10 missions a day, or over 3500 each year.

Relying solely on the generosity of the public to operate, the charity would use the Community Force award to help continue to fund vital missions and to continue to save lives across the six counties we cover.
