Make your fundraising top of the class.
There are so many ways to support the Great North Air Ambulance's lifesaving missions, from dress-down days to bake sales. How you fundraise is entirely up to you, but what really matters is you'll be helping us save the lives of critically ill and injured people across the region. We have lots of fun ideas to get your school fundraising started.
Show your support for a full school year by making the Great North Air Ambulance Service your school’s Chosen Charity.
We’ll send you a fundraising pack filled with everything you need, plus our dedicated team will be on hand to support you along the way, however you choose to get involved.
Join our mission and help us care for the hundreds of patients who need our help every year.Find out more

Holy Trinity Rosehill Primary School
“Inspired by the great Captain Sir Tom Moore, on Monday 18 May 2020 children, families and staff took part in our ‘Make a Difference’ day to raise funds for our chosen charity of the academic year. We had some amazing pledges from bike riding challenges to writing and hosting family quizzes. We are so proud of everybody who took part and are happy to share that we have raised £665.00 in total via the JustGiving page.”
A huge thank you to the pupils, parents and faculty at Holy Trinity Rosehill Primary School for your incredible efforts and wonderful amount raised!Tell us your fundraising plans
