Arrive Alive Appeal

Arrive Alive provides support to the NHS ambulance service and Air Ambulances by providing paramedics and CFR's (Community First Responders) with rapid response vehicles. The vehicles will be used to assist with category ‘A' calls which are classed as serious life threatening emergencies such as; cardiac arrest, unconscious and collapsed patients, chest pains, breathing difficulties, diabetic emergencies, fitting or convulsions, stroke and anaphylaxis. As CFR's are contacted by Ambulance control and asked to attend emergencies within their area the types of terrains can vary greatly from dealing with standard roads to dealing with rural terrains which will require various types of vehicles. Arrive Alive will also provide additional apparatus to paramedics and CFR's such as defibrillators which will be used to provide CPR (cardio pulmonary resuscitation) also additional oxygen canisters as well as other necessary apparatus.

The outcome of the appeal will be to provide vehicles to communities across the United Kingdom which will enable reduced waiting times for emergency medical treatment. It will also enable patients to be transported to hospitals accident and emergency departments more efficiently rather than waiting longer periods of time to receive essential live save saving treatment. If you would like to support Arrive Alive please contact us at [email protected] or via our Twitter page @Arrive_AliveUK or via telephone on 0345 504 8787.

North Dartmoor Search and Rescue

The North Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team (NDSRT) is a voluntary organisation based in Okehampton, linked to Mountain Rescue, England and Wales. For more than 30 years, our volunteers have been offering vital support for the Police and other emergency services by providing a Search and Rescue service for missing and injured persons, 365 days a year.

We do much more than come to the assistance of hill walkers and hikers lost or in difficulty on Dartmoor. We are often called out to search for and, if necessary rescue, many other missing people including the elderly, lost children and despondents.

The team is often mobilised by the Devon and Cornwall Constabulary following a 999 call. We respond immediately, day or night.

The NDSRT consists of around 40 highly trained unpaid volunteers drawn from many walks of life. Each brings unique skills and abilities which together create a professional and dedicated organisation.

Over the years, NDSRT has extended its responsibilities to cover more lowland areas of Devon, Cornwall and Somerset. Today, around half of all "call outs" are away from Dartmoor itself.

The team also provides vital safety cover and marshalling for local community and public events such as Ten Tors, an annual event involving some 2400 youngsters in a two-day expedition across Dartmoor.

Our organisation costs well over £15,000 per year to maintain, but as a registered charity, we are wholly dependent on donations from the general public. Your support is essential to protect this vital, and sometimes life-saving, service.

SARS 999

SARS is a voluntary emergency medical charity which has been active in the East of England since 1972. We help provide life-saving care to critically ill or injured patients in the local community.

Our volunteer clinicians have specialist skills and equipment which are not normally found outside the hospital environment. This enables them to undertake interventions at the scene which can make a positive difference to patient outcomes. 

For almost 50 years, SARS volunteers have responded to thousands of patients and helped save countless lives. All SARS responders offer their time without charge and at no cost to the patient.

SARA has around 200 volunteers and is tasked by the Coastguard, Fire, Police and Ambulance services across its operational area, on average 2-3 times per week, every week of the year. In 2020 SARA responded to 126 different operations. It has 6 x flood teams declared to the national authorities, and they can be (are sometimes are) sent to distant counties when they are in need.

SARA is a charity and has to raise all the costs of running this rescue operation, well over £100,000 per year. Supporting SARA through the Unity Lottery is an excellent way to help SARA to help other people, and have fun at the same time!

South Central Ambulance Charity

Your participation in our lottery makes a lifesaving difference.

Our Charity raises funds to support South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust. All the monies raised are used to fund services, projects and equipment that is not supplied by Government NHS funding. Without the money we raise people in our communities would have to wait longer for help which could affect their recovery.

The Charity works across Hampshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire as well as supporting our Patient Transport Services in Surrey and Sussex.

We have three key objectives:

To provide equipment, uniform and training for our volunteer community first responders
All our Community First Responders (CFRs) are volunteers, and they come from every walk of life. What they have in common is their desire to make a difference by volunteering in life and death situations. CFRs assist the Ambulance Service by attending emergency calls in the areas where they live or work. As they are local, they can often reach a potentially life-threatening emergency in the first vital minutes before the ambulance crew can get to the scene.

To build awareness of lifesaving skills and defibrillators in our communities
A little bit of knowledge goes a long way towards saving a life. We want to deliver:

  • Basic awareness training about public access defibrillators in every community where we have installed one.
  • First aid and basic life-saving training in schools and communities.
  • Access to lifesaving skills and information for everyone by making basic training available online.

The NHS does not fund the ambulance service to provide this. With your help, we can give local communities the skills they need to help themselves, and each other, in a life-threatening emergency.

To support SCAS staff with new equipment and better working environments
Our ability to provide lifesaving care is increasingly dependent on our ability to make sure our staff have access to all the latest technology. The NHS funds us to make sure everyone has the basic tools they need to do their jobs. With your help, we could give our staff access to equipment to allow even better care of patients.

So please join our lottery today and help us save even more lives.
