The Children’s Air Ambulance is an inter-hospital transfer service flying critically ill babies and children from one hospital to another for specialist care.

With their ability to fly approximately four times faster than a land ambulance, they can minimise travel times and the risk for little patients.

#TheCrew is an exciting club for children, linked to the Children’s Air Ambulance, where children can learn about saving lives, helicopters, medicine, fundraising and how a charity works. The club offers advice and teaching on community work, volunteering, working as part of a team and supporting good causes which form part of many school curriculums.

#TheCrew members get to go to special events* where they can see the charity’s helicopters, meet their pilots, doctors and paramedics. Members might also be lucky enough to go play football with one of the England Lionesses, visit a TV or film set or see a show or concert. There are lots of exciting things available to members of #TheCrew.

Membership of #TheCrew is free for the first year and all they ask after is that children try to raise funds for their vital work. A minimum £25 raised continues the membership and there’s a great team on hand who can help.

What greater gift can you give a child than learning, experience and an achievement in actually helping to save lives?

Join #TheCrew now and see where it takes you!
