Volunteering

We have over 200 volunteers who kindly offer their time, enthusiasm and dedication to the charity, in a variety of different ways. Our volunteers come from a wide range of backgrounds and ages and give us as much time as they feel able. Without our team of volunteers we simply could not provide the service we deliver to those who need us.



So why not get involved today? Join the team, make a difference and have lots of fun along the way!
 
‘Being a volunteer is an extremely rewarding way of meeting lovely people. Raising money and awareness of the charity is very gratifying knowing that I am helping to save lives’
 
‘Volunteering for the air ambulance is a fun way to be proactive in my local community and provides a good opportunity to build relationships. I find attending events and collections on behalf of the charity fulfilling and wide-ranging’
