Our team of volunteers underpins all that we do here at Magpas Air Ambulance—we can only continue to save lives because of the time given by those in our community.

Join us and help save lives

We have lots of volunteering opportunities available, and there's no need to make a regular commitment—just a few hours of your time will make a huge difference. Some volunteers help out every week, while others have a favourite event that they attend for us once a year.

There's something for everyone! Our volunteers help with bucket collections, manning stands at events, cheering on runners, loading vans, stock-checking, answering the telephone to take donations and posting fundraising packs, to name a few examples.

What's in it for you?

As a Magpas Air Ambulance volunteer, you will receive a warm and friendly welcome; full and ongoing training; and everything you need to carry out your voluntary role.

There are opportunities to meet up with other like-minded volunteers and to visit our new operational base at Alconbury Weald later in 2023, to see the helicopter and meet some of the medical and aviation team.

What our volunteers say

"Volunteering with Magpas is an important part of being me. I wanted to dedicate some of my time to what I consider to be a worthy cause and Magpas appealed to me on so many levels."

Office and events volunteer

"In my hour of need, the Magpas Air Ambulance team was there for me, and now I want to promote them firsthand. I am a survivor. Thank you, Magpas Air Ambulance."

Former patient and events volunteer

"I always feel happy when I walk in to the office, seeing everyone's smiling faces—they make you feel like a family member and not just a volunteer. The tasks that are available to the volunteers are wide and varied as everyone has a strength in achieving a goal. I like to give something to assist the few that will help the many."

Office and events volunteer

"Without this charity, I would not be alive. Not a day goes by without Magpas Air Ambulance touching down and helping a person in great difficulty. It is my pleasure to help this charity with regard to fundraising."
