Devon Air Ambulance Trust

We raise the £5.5 million needed to keep Devon's 2 Air Ambulances flying

Story

Staff and Students at Honiton Sixth Form are taking part in a continuous 24hr bike ride. Between three exercise bikes, we will cycle the length of the country - John O'Groats to Lands End (847 miles). 

Devon Air Ambulance Trust (DAAT) owns 2 helicopters and operates 7 days a week; as of autumn 2016 DAAT will extend its flying hours until midnight. Responding to approximately 1,400 incidents every year DAAT conveys patients to the specialist treatment centre most appropriate for their needs, giving them the best chance of survival. The service costs £5.5 million every year and DAAT is proud to be independent of Government and National Lottery funding, relying solely on the generous donations of the people, businesses and communities of Devon.
