Devon Air Ambulance

1. DAAT Paramedics 2015 2 lightened

Devon Air Ambulance provides urgent medical assistance to the people in Devon. Their aircrew take patients to the hospital most appropriate for their needs, often bypassing the nearest hospital for the one that can provide the specialised care to ensure the patient has the best chance of survival. In addition, they have substantially improved patient care through the creation of a ground breaking clinical development degree for air paramedics, making them amongst the highest qualified in the profession and putting Devon on the map as a centre of excellence for pre-hospital critical care.

It costs £5.5 million every year to keep our 2 helicopters flying and they are incredibly proud to be independent of Government and National Lottery, this means they rely entirely on the generous donations and support of the people, businesses and communities of Devon. It is with thanks to the friends of Devon that last year they celebrated 25 years of service and in November 2016 they extended their operating hours so that they can fly right up until midnight every day.

They have been running their own in-house Lottery since 2001 and have seen it grow from strength to strength; they are extremely proud to have over 39,000 active players. Their Lottery now accounts for 27% of their annual fundraising income and has raised over £16million in sales since its beginning.

Being a member of The Lotteries Council enables them to keep up to date with all the rules and regulations, and attending national and regional meetings gives them a chance to discuss with other charities best working practices.
