REDS

(Regular Essential Donation Scheme)
 

Public support is essential in keeping your air ambulance flying!


By joining the REDS, you will help to provide us with a steady income; one we can rely on. Regular donations help us to plan ahead and make developments to our service, thus improving patient care and the level of treatment that can be provided to patients at the scene of serious incidents. For example, 2013 saw the launch of the charity’s blood transfusion service. This enables our medical crews to care for those patients who are in desperate need of a blood transfusion, before they get to a hospital.

There are several different levels of regular giving to suit every pocket, and all really help our medical crews to save lives. It couldn’t be easier to join the REDS, simply download and complete the Direct Debit form at the bottom of this page, and return it to FREEPOST KSSAAT (no stamp or other address details required).

We can’t thank you enough for your support.

Traumatised patients lose their body heat very quickly, even in hot environments. Bubble wrap provides the most effective means of preserving body heat; it can make the difference between bleeding to death and survival.
