Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance


Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance are looking to recruit 75 volunteers to help us at this year’s BoomTown Fair from Monday 10th – Sunday 16th August.

Every day the Air Ambulance crew provide an efficient, prompt response to road traffic collisions, sporting accidents, collapses, and many other incidents throughout Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.

It is our aim to provide an exemplary Air Ambulance service to the people of Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, conveying patients to the most appropriate hospital for their needs.

We receive no government funding and without your hard work, generosity and commitment, we would not be flying and saving lives.

Whether it’s running in a local fun run or taking up an expedition to Mount Kilimanjaro, there are many ways in which you can challenge yourself and raise money for HIOWAA

It currently costs the charity £125,000 each month to keep the Air Ambulance flying and we couldn’t do it without the constant support we receive from the people of Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.

Without the dedicated work that our volunteers put into events and many other areas of the charity’s work, we could not achieve the high standard that we undoubtedly do.

"The 29 March was just one of those perfect bright Spring days to be out and about on horseback. It was right at the end of a happy few hours that my horse, Peachy, reared up and threw me off backwards. I can remember thinking I had always wondered how I would die and well, this was going to be it..."

"It all happened during the Christmas period 2011. My husband was in a Nursing Home suffering from Vascular Dementia and I wanted to spend Christmas Day with him so I had travelled down to Bristol and spent a few days with my son and family but returned home Christmas Eve"

"I was cycling with a friend of mine in Chilworth woods when I attempted a jump that I maybe should have attempted as a 16 year old boy and not a middle aged man. I Ended up flying through the air and don’t recall much apart from then landing on my collar bone."

"So much has happened to me over the last year which makes it hard to know where to begin. I have recently run a half marathon, which is tough in itself, but taking on a half marathon after just getting back to fitness is even tougher"
