Take a look below for opportunities that you can get involved with
We operate a general ‘opt-in’ ethos – you give your time when you want, however you want. And you don’t have to commit to the same time each week or month – time given on an occasional basis is just as valuable and welcomed.
Click on the yellow arrows below for details of each opportunity. If you’d like to find out more about our volunteering opportunities, please contact your local Volunteer Coordinator.
Street and store collections can take place whenever, wherever, all in the name of raising funds and awareness. Throw on a hi-viz bib, grab a bucket (don’t shake it, remember) and a reel of stickers, and you’re away. It’s bread and butter fundraising at its best.
Box collectors are responsible for monitoring and collecting from the collection boxes within our two counties. Collectors are given an area to cover in their preferred county. This involves building up friendships with our supporters who are kind and generous enough to have our boxes on display in their businesses
It’s always great to acknowledge those who have raised money for our charity and cheque presentations are the epitome of this. Being an ambassador at an event or photo opportunity enables us to publicly thank the amazing work of our communities. After all, our Air Ambulance only exists because of the people who support us.
Having a captive audience is a brilliant way to spread the good word of our charity and operations. Presentations can involve a PowerPoint, or be a more directly spoken, interactive experience. As long as we get the necessary facts and figures across, with a bit of humour thrown in for good measure, then every talk should be a success!
Our charity shops are the face of the Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance in their respective areas. As well as raising money for our charity, they also serve their local community through the recycling of donated goods and provide a friendly experience for regular and new customers. Roles in the shop include making sales displays, taking payments and interacting with the customers.
Sorting and rummaging is a satisfying role for those who like to find “hidden treasures” in the public’s donated items. From clothing to bric a brac, DVDs to furniture, all types of donated goods are sorted to ensure our charity shops are well stocked with clean, resale-able items.
Come rain or shine, we need to keep our charity in the heart and minds of our Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire communities. Be it a large outdoor County Show during the summer months under one of our tents, complete with mud, brollies and wellies, or a cosy, comfortable Christmas card sale in a village hall in winter, we rely on our volunteers to make this possible.
