Weʼve raised £230 to Continue our fundraising for re-instating Teddy Bears onboard the Scottish Air Ambulance flights throughout northern Scotland.
- Shetland, UK
- Funded on Thursday, 10th January 2019
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
UPDATED SEPTEMBER 2018
Teddy bears used to be distributed to babies, young children and expectant mothers onboard the Scottish Air Ambulance flights but due to lack of public donations they have been unable to provide the bears over the past two years.
We unfortunately had to be transferred from Shetland to the Royal Aberdeen Children's Hospital with our daughter and it was during this flight we got into a conversation with the onboard paramedic Peter Craigmile who explained to us about the bears.
When our daughter was well enough to come back home we immediately started fundraising to help redesign and purchase new bears. We raised enough to get the first batch of new bears ordered and they are now back being distributed onboard the air ambulance flights but we are still fundraising to ensure there is enough funds to continue supplying them.
These bears are a great comfort to young children as it helps comfort them when they are distressed while being transferred to hospital.
Your donations will ensure that funds will be available to reorder the bears for others to receive and have as a keepsake of their stressful experience.

We live on the Small Isles on west coast and had to recently use the air ambulance service. What an amazing job they do! My boy got a wee teddy and it was a good distraction. Thanks
