SCAA - Scotland's Charity Air Ambulance

The Bean Shop supports SCAA through our SCAA coffee blend.  We donate 50p for every 250g coffee beans sold to SCAA.

Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance saves and improves lives across Scotland every day. 

SCAA currently operates two helicopters, both EC135-T2is, and two rapid response vehicles - taking life-saving pre-hospital care to the scene of time-critical emergencies. SCAA then transports patients to hospitals all over Scotland to receive the most appropriate medical care.

SCAA makes a difference - a patient’s chance of survival and full recovery are greatly increased if they receive the right medical care within the first hour of injury or illness. The fast response of SCAA and its ability to reach Scotland’s most remote and rural areas saves vital minutes when every second really does count.

SCAA can be airborne within five minutes of receiving an emergency call and can reach 90% of Scotland’s population within 25 minutes.

Working in partnership with the Scottish Ambulance Service (SAS), SCAA is an integral part of Scotland’s frontline emergency response network, responding to trauma incidents and medical emergencies across the country, covering an area of more than 30,000 square miles.

As Scotland’s only charity air ambulance, SCAA is funded by the people of Scotland, primarily through donations, fundraising, events and our life-saving lottery.

World Vision

The Bean Shop has been sponsoring children since 2006.  We have provided communities with schooling, schooling equipment, livestock and birthday and Christmas gifts.

World Vision - Our vision is of a world in which every child has the chance to live life to the full; where they are loved, protected and cared for, and enjoy good health and an education.

For this to become a reality, World Vision works alongside communities in close to 100 countries to bring about long-term change; giving children a voice in the places where decisions are made and responding quickly to the emergencies that affect more than 250 million people around the world each year. As they do this, they focus on three key areas: child protection, child health and emergency relief.

Closer to home

The Bean Shop regularly donates coffee either ready-brewed or as raffle prizes for coffee mornings, fundraisers, local schools, clubs and Perthshire based charities.  We are always willing to help those who work so hard for and give up their time to help those less fortunate in the community.  If you need us to help with your local charity event, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
