Why not make your New Year’s resolution really count and become a Devon Air Ambulance volunteer? We receive no government funding and are totally reliant on donations from the people of Devon. We offer an array of volunteering opportunities from box collecting, giving talks, attending cheque presentation, assisting in one of our 18 charity shops or helping out at our annual events. Volunteering can really make a real difference to your own life and the lives of others. This opportunity would suit anyone who would like to get out of the house, make new friends, do something worthwhile, all whilst having fun! We really do appreciate any amount of time you can offer. Whoever you are, you’d fit in just fine!
Please contact our Volunteer Manager Cara Jones by calling 01392 466666 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
