Celebrate with us this National Air Ambulance Week (10-16 September) by taking part in our ‘Get Up and Go Yellow’ fundraising day on Thursday 13th September.
We wanted to host a day that anyone could get involved with anywhere at any time, and came up with the idea to donate and go yellow. Everyone can take part, either alone or with friends, family, work colleagues, schools, groups or whoever you want to get involved. All you need to do is get up and wear, bake, make, create and go yellow in homage to the charity’s yellow helicopter. You could have a wear it yellow to work day (with your boss’s permission of course), bake some yellow cakes, hold a yellow raffle, guess the number of yellow sweets in the jar, decorate your desk yellow and so much more.
Head of Community Fundraising, Stuart Wyle, said; “This is a new initiative for us, and we really wanted to host something that would celebrate National Air Ambulance Week, but also EAAA as a charity, and we thought what better way than to turn as many people as possible across the region yellow, the colours of our wonderful H145 helicopter. We can’t wait to see all the creative ways people think of to go yellow and raise funds. All the money donated from the day will go towards helping us save lives across the region. Without your support we can’t do what we do.”
