You can send cheques made payable to North West Air Ambulance Charity to our head office. Our address is North West Air Ambulance Charity, North Mersey Business Centre, Woodward Road, Knowsley, L33 7UY

You can pay in online –

Go to our online donation form here. Here you can provide details of how the funds were raised and why. Payments are made through PayPal, if you don’t have a PayPal account you can use your credit or debit card.

You can call us on 0800 587 4570 and a member of our Supporter Engagement Team will be able to take a payment over the phone.

BACS transfer –

You can make a bank transfer, but please let us before doing this as we will provide a unique reference number for you to use. Contact your local fundraiser, email fundraising@nwairambulance.org.uk, or call us on 0800 587 4570 to do this.

Yes, if you are under 18 years old you can still fundraise for us. However, we do ask that a parent or guardian gets in touch to let us know about your fundraising and all contact will be made through them.

Due to the nature of our service, our three helicopters and HEMS response vehicles must always be ready and equipped to save lives. Taking a helicopter offline would prevent us responding to those who need us most, therefore this is not something we would be able to justify as a charity.
