Air Ambulance UK has teamed up with The Virtual Pub Quiz – the lockdown phenomenon that is bringing together 180,000+ keen quizzers each week, to champion UK Air Ambulance charities.

A partnership between Air Ambulance UK, the organisation that represents 21 UK air ambulance charities, and The Virtual Pub Quiz, is engaging over 180,000 quiz enthusiasts each week to help boost funds in support of the charities' lifesaving work. Of these Devon Air Ambulance is a beneficiary.

The UK's air ambulance charities are dispatched to over 70 life-saving missions each day, medical and trauma, delivering urgent and specialised critical care to the scene.

The partnership will raise much-needed funds and awareness for the UK’s air ambulance charities who have played a vital role on the frontline response to Covid-19 whilst still delivering lifesaving care in their local communities.

Each mission is almost entirely funded by donations; there is no regular direct funding from the Government. With a severe lack of community fundraising events going ahead, support from partnerships like this helps to make a valuable impact on the service air ambulance charities nationwide can bring to their communities.

Quiz-goers can join Quizmaster, Jay Flynn, live from 7.50pm for an 8.15pm start on Thursday 27th August and Sat  22nd, 29th August on Facebook and YouTube to show support for the UK’s air ambulance charities. Although free to take part, Jay encourages quizzers to donate to his chosen cause to participate in the quiz.

Those unable to join the quiz can support the event and therefore Devon Air Ambulance, by sharing details about it on social media pages to bring more supporters to support the country's air ambulances. To donate, visit https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/airaquiz
