Guest Posted March 3, 2008 Share Posted March 3, 2008 This is a discussion topic and here is a suggestion:- Choose 6 air ambulances that are on our route. Each pilot is allocated one air ambulance service to raise money for. All flying and other organisations in that area (outdoor pursuits clubs, motor racers etc etc) who have an interest in the air ambulance service are sent the details of the trip, promo stuff or simply the address a website. They are invited to organise sponsorship locally for their pilot. Set up a Just Giiving .com site for that pilot for that ambulance service and get the sponsors to pledge directly to that site, or collect locally and submit the proceeds to that site. All the accounting is done for us. In addition each pilot sets up another Just Giving site for the childrens forces trust and sets about raising sponsorhip (by whatever means) for that cahrity. Most of us have forces connections so that side may be easier than the ambulance bit? Doing it this way removes any questions about central organisation of funds and the accounting is all in place. Anyone who was previously involved but has stepped back can step back in again using this method perhaps? This idea can be set up in addition to any other sponsorship/fund raising schemes that individual pilots have already thought of or are now in place.
