One-third of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance income comes from Gifts in Will donations.

One day someone you know could require life-saving treatment from the Yorkshire Air Ambulance. Invest in their future by considering leaving a gift in your will and help the Yorkshire Air Ambulance continue saving lives across the region.

Your donation will help towards the vital funding of our service, from keeping the air ambulances maintained and in the air, to helping our crew keep up to date with latest industry developments.

For many of our supporters, a gift in their will is their most heartfelt donation to us. It is often a way of continuing what may have been a very personal, emotional or even lifelong relationship with the charity.

Leaving a gift in your will is something that will not affect you right now, but can truly make a difference to the future of others.

We promise to spend every £1 donated effectively, wisely and where possible that money will be spent in Yorkshire.

“Why I am leaving the Yorkshire Air Ambulance a gift in my Will…"

“I was suffering acute chest pains and collapsed in my doorway trying to get help. Thankfully a neighbour opposite saw me and called 999. I live in a fairly rural town in the Calder Valley, surrounded by hills. The air ambulance was able to take me directly to the cardiac unit at Leeds General  Infirmary where surgeons operated to save my life. If that journey had been made by road, I would not have made it. I owe my life to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, which is why I am leaving them a gift in my will. We are so lucky to have them.”

Mr H Levene, 71, West Yorkshire, Heart Attack
