Air Ambulance Charity Kent Surrey Sussex

The Kentish Killer Nominated Charity - Kent Surrey Sussex Air Ambulance

Air Ambulance Charity Kent Surrey Sussex (KSS) is an independent charity at the forefront of Helicopter Emergency Medical Services (HEMS). KSS is a vital part of your communities, your lives and your safety. It costs £16.6M a year to operate this cutting edge, innovative service with 87% of KSS’s total income raised through the incredible generosity of its supporters. KSS bring the emergency room to the scene and deliver life-saving, critical care. They can perform open heart surgery, deliver anaesthetic, and administer life-saving blood transfusions. But with your support, KSS can achieve more. When they arrive on scene, our patients need us to be at our very best. That’s why we’re continuously innovating and striving to improve our treatments and technology. We share our knowledge and expertise, so our impact is felt worldwide. But it’s felt most here in Kent, Surrey and Sussex. Every life matters and with your support we can give every patient the best possible chance of survival and recovery. “We are incredibly proud to have been the Kentish Killer’s nominated charity for over 9 years and are delighted to be supporting them once again in 2023” – Francesca Vale, Kent Community Fundraiser

What the Riders Say


Enter the Kentish Killer


Keep up to date with us


The Kentish Killer sportive marks the start of the cycling season in South East England – regarded by clubs and riders as one of the UK’s toughest, most demanding sportives. The Kentish Killer is held on back to back weekends with the Hell of the Ashdown (HOTA), another extremely testing sportive. These two events give riders a benchmark on their winter training progress as well as bragging rights for ‘doing the double’ for those brave enough and successful in completing both sportives.
The Kentish Killer 2024 route will follow the original course with riders covering 100km with 1855 metres of climbing taking on a number of well known and feared climbs and cols including Row Dow, Hubbards, Ide, Carters and Sundridge!
As with previous editions of the sportive, our charity partner for 2024 will again be Kent, Surrey Sussex Air Ambulance (KSSAA)  – a charity with strong ties to the local community & many cyclists.
