Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance
Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance (SCAA) is the People’s Helicopter – saving and improving lives in every corner of Scotland, 365 days a year.
As the country’s only charity-funded air ambulance, SCAA relies entirely on public donations to fuel its life-saving flights that bring help and hope to those suffering serious injury or illness wherever and whenever required.
An integral part of Scotland’s frontline emergency response network, SCAA is able to reach 90% of Scotland’s population within 25 minutes, including remote and rural areas that are difficult to access by road.
Time-critical traumatic accidents and medical emergencies including road traffic collisions, industrial accidents, equestrian, sporting and leisure accidents, strokes and heart attacks, falls and agricultural injuries all feature on SCAA’s busy workload as it flies expert paramedic care to the scene and provides speedy onward transfer to specialist hospitals.
SCAA is a proven life-saving service that needs your support - to keep it flying to those in desperate need of an air ambulance, when speed and urgent medical attention are critical factors in their chance of survival.
If you pledge to raise £175 (min £100) you may be eligible for one of SCAA’s 10 free places. If you would like to help save Scottish lives by running for SCAA, please contact Fiona Dennis during office hours:-
All those raising £100+ for SCAA will receive a SCAA t-shirt and wrist band.
All those raising over £500 will receive a t-shirt, a goody bag and the opportunity to visit SCAA at the Airfield.
