Volunteers are amazing people and we want to celebrate the vital contribution volunteers make to the work of our life-saving charity.

Our volunteers are very important to us. They are our ambassadors, giving us their time in a variety of ways to raise both awareness and funds for our critical life-saving work.

Whatever your skills or experience, there are lots of different roles available to join volunteer with LNAA and join our fantastic team.

Jen Garner at Mansfield Woodhouse

"I am proud that in my small way I am contributing to the running of LNAA"

When Jen Garner’s husband died, she thought volunteering would help get her out of the house and socialise in a gentle way.

Jen volunteers just one day a week at LNAA’s Mansfield Woodhouse shop and her role is front of house looking after the till.  The shop is a lifeline to many people who use it she is proud knowing that in her small way she is contributing to the running of LNAA as well as helping others.

 

Andrew Jarvis

"We can never have enough volunteers, the more we have the easier it is for us all”

Retired schoolteacher, Andrew Jarvis volunteers with LNAA as a Speaker at talks and events as well as helping out with bucket collections and manning stands.

He chose to volunteer with LNAA after he suffered a heart attack whilst refereeing a football match in Mansfield in August 2021 and was airlifted by helicopter to Royal Derby Hospital.

The more he discovered about the vital work Air Ambulance charities do the more he wanted to help more lives be saved.

As he says, the highs are definitely meeting our supporters, the lows are standing behind a stall on a cold dull December day!!

Les & Joyce volunteer for us

"We fly the flag for LNAA as much as we can, we’re glad to be part of a great team"

Fundraiser Les Pert chose to become a volunteer in 2016.

Together with his wife, Joyce, they often do cheque presentations, talks and collections across rural parts of Lincolnshire and assist airside by picking up or delivering parts.

They thoroughly enjoy volunteering time and say that helping raise money to keep our helicopter flying and critical care cars operational is very worthwhile.

Charlotte Glass

"Giving time as a volunteer, I play a part in saving someone's life"

Charlotte’s dad was involved in a road traffic incident when she was 16 years old. Despite the best efforts of LNAA crew, he passed away. Ever since then she has wanted to give something back to LNAA in thanks for trying that day to save his life and also to help others so they might not have the same outcome.

After completing the London Marathon in 2022 to raise funds for LNNA, Charlotte wanted to give her feet a rest but still do something to help! She has recently completed her training to become our newest volunteer.

NIgel Winkett

"I was inspired to learn more about the amazing services and support it delivers."

Nigel Winkett is one of LNAA’s Trustees, volunteering his time to govern the charity and help it achieve its aims.

Since taking on the role, he understands much more about the level of funding required to maintain and deliver all the current clinical services and to support growth aspirations and create long term sustainability.

Nigel finds it very rewarding to utilise the skills & experiences he’s developed over the last 37 years to add value and help make a difference by being a true ‘critical friend’.

Do something amazing with your time…

Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance needs £10 million this year to keep its helicopter flying and critical care cars operational, providing life-saving per-hospital care to the communities in Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire.

Volunteers can give as much or as little time as they are able to on a regular or occasional basis. Whatever your skills or experience, whatever time you can give, there are lots of different roles available to join our fantastic team.
