Midlands Air Ambulance Charity’s dedicated family of volunteers play a vital role in helping the charity save lives by donating their valuable time across a range of activities including:
- Support in the charity’s shops
- Assisting with administration tasks in peak periods
- Helping at charity events
- Giving talks and sharing information on what the charity does
In doing so, volunteers play a pivotal role in changing the lives of the charity’s staff, aircrew, donors and patients.
Alison Hill, donor support and volunteer manager for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, says: “Volunteers donating their time means that the charity can allocate 94p of every £1.00 donated to the cause.
“Put simply, this means that more of the funds the charity raises go to our vitally important pre hospital emergency service, which has a positive impact on patient outcomes.”
What I love about volunteering for MAAC is the variety of events I can get involved in and the team I work with.”
Sally McMahon, volunteer for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, adds: “I decided to volunteer for a charity that made a difference to my local community. I took a look at MAAC’s website and was impressed. I wanted to find out more so did some research.
“The charity’s values emulate my own and the fact that it operates a lifesaving service means it was an easy choice to make.
“What I love about volunteering for MAAC is the variety of events I can get involved in and the team I work with – I’ve learned so much from them. I also love that I can get involved with as much or as little as I want, meaning I can pursue other interests as well as spend time with friends and family.”
