Devon Air Ambulance Trust (DAAT) is a registered charity that provides emergency Air Ambulance Services in and around the county of Devon.  DAAT are working with communities across the county to develop a network of pre-surveyed floodlit ‘community landing sites‘ which enables them to bring a life-saving service into the heart of communities when it is dark.

The parishes of Arlington, Kentisbury and Parracombe are working together with DAAT to install a community night landing site at Blackmoor Gate farmers market.  The total cost of the project is in the region of £8,000, just over half of which has been pledged by DAAT.  We have further received pledges of £1,000 from North Devon Council and £1,265 from Exmoor Trust.  The parishes are also using their Town and Parish (TAP) funding allocation for this year. TAP funding can be used for capital and revenue projects that will benefit residents of at least two parishes, and meet identified community needs. The remainder of the money is being raised by community fundraising events.

If you would like to support fundraising activities the following are being run for the benefit of the project:
