Gifts in Wills fund one in every four of our emergency missions and help to secure our life-saving services for the next generation
The beauty of leaving a gift in a Will is that it is made when somebody is very much alive. We understand that family and loved ones come first when making your Will. If you leave a gift to the EAAA, no matter what the size, we can assure you that each gift will go towards saving more lives in East Anglia for many years to come.
“I am leaving a gift in my Will for East Anglian Air Ambulance because they were there to give me the gift of life, I will forever be in their debt.”
Making a Will is the only way to make sure that your wishes will be respected and that your family and friends are taken care of. Without a Will, loved ones can be left in a difficult position so it’s best to make your intentions clear. To prepare a Will for the first time we recommend you seek legal advice to ensure it is valid and all legal formalities are followed. If you already have a Will and have chosen to include EAAA afterwards, you can use a codicil as an add-on to your Will. Make sure you send it to your solicitor or keep it safely with your Will.
If you have already made the decision to include EAAA in your Will, or you are leaving a gift in your Will in memory of a loved one, may we thank you so much. We would love to hear from you to be able to say thank you.
Please feel free to contact us in confidence for further information, to inform us of a gift in a Will or to request a copy of our gifts in Wills booklet.

Meet Carl Atkins
In September 2003 Carl Atkins was knocked off his motorbike and run over by a bus in Old Buckenham, leaving him seriously injured. EAAA was tasked to attend the scene by helicopter. Carl has seen first-hand the work that we do, and has chosen to leave a gift to EAAA in his will in the hope that this could help someone just like him.Read Carl's story
“When my husband had a seizure I dialled 999. I was amazed how quickly the East Anglian Air Ambulance arrived. I was obviously aware of the organisation but only now do I appreciate how fortunate we are to have such amazing people operating in this area. I vowed then to support the EAAA and have arranged, with my solicitor, to leave money in my Will to help provide much needed funds.”
Some of our patients kindly allow us to share their stories so we can share them with you. Read their stories to see the difference your donation could make.
