Christmas Lift Off!


Air Ambulance NI lifts off to help critically ill patients every day. 

On Christmas Day, the 12 Days of Christmas, and every other day of the year, the pilots, doctors, and paramedics of Air Ambulance NI will be on duty to respond to serious medical emergencies.

We hope you will be able to celebrate Christmas with family and friends, open presents and enjoy a celebratory lunch. But before that, we’re asking for your help to ensure we can lift off on Christmas Day for those who need us!

Leave a special Christmas message for your loved one. It may be a family member you can’t celebrate Christmas with this year, a friend you haven’t seen in a long time or perhaps a shout out to our crew who will be working hard on Christmas Day providing critical pre-hospital care.

By donating below and leaving a special Christmas message to a loved one this year, you could help us raise the £5,500 needed to fund our service each day and ensure our heli can lift off this Christmas!
