Host your own Brew for the Crew event and help fund our lifesaving missions
It’s time to pop the kettle on! In partnership with Lancashire Tea, we are asking YOU to host a #BrewForTheCrew with your friends, family, and colleagues.
Phil Toms – Head of Marketing at Lancashire Tea:
“Here at Lancashire Tea, we have a simple philosophy that a good brew is always a good idea. Linking up with the folks at the North West Air Ambulance and supporting the fantastic ‘brew for the crew’ initiative just makes sense given our own love for the wider communi-tea. We look forward to playing our own small part in helping to shine a light on the wonderful work the team at NWAA do on a daily basis supporting people across the region.”
We are not part of the NHS and receive no government funding, so we really do rely on the generosity of people like you. By having a brew with your crew, you’ll help our crew make a lifesaving difference to those who need us most. We have all the materials on this page to help you make it happen.
Make sure to shout about your event! Our ready-made materials are here to help. You could send out personal invites to your guests or share the event on social media. Putting up posters at work or at your venue is a great way to let people know about your Brew for the Crew.
We’ve put together a quiz to keep your guests entertained and test their knowledge on the North West Air Ambulance Charity. Why not also ask them to take part in a sweepstake? Or challenge your guests to a bake off?
Make sure you have a way for people to donate on the day. You could have jars or tubs on the tables or set up an online fundraising page sharing the details with your guests. Why not have a suggested donation of £2 to take part in the quiz or sweepstake? You could also ask for a donation to enter the bake off competition or hold a raffle.
Don’t forget Gift Aid – if your guests complete a Gift Aid form we can claim an extra 25% of their donation from the government at no cost to them!
Use our cut out bunting to decorate your venue for your par-tea! You can use our posters to add in details of the day, how your guests can donate and how they can get involved.
Collect the money you’ve raised and pay it in. You can do this online, over the phone or by bank transfer. If guests completed Gift Aid forms make sure to send these back to us too.
Don’t forget to tell your guest how much you raised. You can do this by using one of our posters or personal thank you cards.
And make sure you let everybody know how it went by sharing your Brew for the Crew story on social media. We’d love to see your photo’s too! Tag us in your social media posts or send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
