One Million Heartbeats

BOB, your local Air Ambulance for Berkshire, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire, needs your help to raise the funds needed to keep this vital, life saving service operational 365 days per year.

Show your love for BOB by purchasing a heartbeat for just £1 and help fly the Thames Valley & Chiltern Air Ambulance Trust to their target of One Million Heartbeats.

1 heartbeat equals just £1 and there is no limit on how many you can purchase - so why not club together with family, friends or work colleagues and show how much your heartbeats for BOB.

The top donor each month from each of the four categories (individuals, schools, businesses, pubs & clubs) will be given the opportunity of a personal trip to meet BOB and the aircrew at RAF Benson.

BOB has attended over 12,000 missions since 1999.  If you are an ex-patient and your heartbeats because of BOB, why not share your story with us; email the TVACAA team at

Watch Out! One Million Heartbeats merchandise will be available to buy online shortly so please check the merchandise page regularly.

If you would prefer to donate by cheque, postal order of CAF voucher please post it to our head office - quoting 'One Million Heartbeats' or donate by telephone on 0300 999 0 135 (local rate).
