Air Ambulance collections

We have been advised that the Essex and Air Ambulance Lottery will be canvassing for new members in Colchester and Harwich. They do not collect cash or any donations on the door, the new members they sign up agree to play / join via direct debit or cheque.

The canvassers are dressed in hi-visibility jackets / vests, and will also be wearing Essex & Herts Air Ambulance branded clothing. They carry picture ID cards.

The canvassers usually operate Monday-Friday between the hours of 9am-8pm and occasionally at weekends.
