The Air Aid Ball first started in 2007. A group of local people who were aware of the vital service provided by the air ambulance set up a committee to run an event that would raise awareness and much needed funding.

Redhill Aerodrome and the Redhill Flying Club was founded in 1934 by Geoffrey Last who, during that same year, also oversaw the construction of the first hangar on the airfield. Now known as ‘Hangar 9’, this historic building will be the venue for the 2017 Air Aid Ball.

The Air Ambulance responds to an average of 8-10 emergencies every day or night across the counties of Kent, Surrey & Sussex, arriving at the scene within 20 minutes of being called. Since its inception it has attended 25,000 incidents, but each callout costs around £2,500 and there is no government funding, hence the committee’s determination to help.

What inspired them to devote their own time and effort to this cause? Stories like the one below from Liz James.

‘You just never expect it’s going to happen to you, but on this day, out of nowhere, it happened to me. It was the last thing I was expecting. It was just a normal Monday. I’d been at work all morning and decided that it would be nice to pop home for lunch with my little boys and my husband.’  Read More >>
