An air ambulance charity is asking people to complete a survey so it can gauge awareness of the service.
The Thames Valley and Chiltern Air Ambulance (TVACAA) provides medical care throughout the area for 365 days a year.
Robert Downham, a marketing assistant with the TVACAA, says the results of the survey will help set the charities future direction.
He said: "We're quite anxious to find out whether people do know the work we do and what motivates people to support charitable causes."
He explained that many people are unaware the service is a charity and assume it is government funded.
Robert added: "The more people who take part will give us a better understanding of whether or not the message is out there."
