NHS Staff need us now more than ever...

As many millions of people enter Tier 4 and the pandemic mounts, NHS staff are in desperate need, now more than ever. We want to show these heroes we still care and remain ready to offer tea and empathy to help them through their day. The strain is building and since launching our appeal we have been in touch with many trusts who need our support as soon as possible but to make this a reality we need your help!

How it all started...

Project Wingman was launched in April 2020 in response to the Covid-19 pandemic and is all about aircrew volunteers coming together with a shared objective to offer their time, knowledge and expertise to deliver the simple concept of ‘tea and empathy’ to NHS staff. 

Bespoke Wingman Lounges have been created in over 80 hospitals nationwide thus far. Here we invite frontline workers to join our uniformed teams who not only serve refreshments but also importantly take the time to talk to our visitors during breaks on what are often difficult, demanding shifts.

The future...

As NHS Trusts continue to navigate the challenging and ever-changing requirements of the healthcare service and with physical hospital space at an all-time premium, Project Wingman wants to start the next chapter of our story and grow our presence with a mobile lounge. This lounge will allow us to tour the country, permitting us to continue to provide this complementary wellbeing service directly where it’s needed most. 

This mobile lounge will take the form of a specially converted double decker bus which we have not only already sourced but also have conducted extensive research to ensure we understand the logistics and costs associated with the operation of a mobile lounge and now we need your help!

Operating as an independent initiative, the charity is not affiliated with any airline or NHS trust and relies entirely on fundraising alone. We are now reaching out to our wider community to join us and get on board with our Wingman Wheels Appeal to help us raise £100,000 to make this initiative a reality.

Where your donations will go...

These valuable funds will allow us to complete the purchase of our bus, convert it fully to fit our needs and run the service for its first year. We recognise that not everyone is in a position to help our NHS physically, but if you are able to donate, no matter how much, you will be directly supporting this project and in turn our vital healthcare service. 

As a thank you for your valued support and in recognition of your generous donation, we have a suite of rewards available with some amazing 'money can't buy experiences' and please don’t forget to gift aid if you can!

Thank you so much for your support. It means a lot to us but it means incredible amount to our amazing NHS staff who will directly benefit from it.
