I retired in December 2018 and decided I’d like to volunteer, but the question was where? I had walked past Magpas Air Ambulance a few times and thought to myself, “I would love to be involved in something worthwhile and this is such a good cause.”
When I received the application form, it had tick boxes for what I was interested in and I decided to tick the ‘office fundraising’ box, as office work played a big part of my working life. I then had an interview with Annette from the team and I couldn’t wait to start!
When I joined, I realised the charity is run purely on donations and that made me want to help even more. My days are varied and I enjoy every minute. The fundraising team work exceptionally hard to raise the funds needed to help make a huge difference to seriously ill or injured people’s lives. I am really pleased to be part of the Magpas Air Ambulance family.
If, like Irene, you’d like to be part of our team and volunteer by giving a few hours of your time at Magpas Air Ambulance; just give Debbie our Supporter Care Manager at Magpas Air Ambulance a call on: 01480 371060 (Option 2).
We look forward to hearing from you. Thank you.
