We have just put out a fresh appeal for new volunteers. Volunteers play a key role in our fund raising activities and their contribution towards the fight to save lives across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight is invaluable. Specifically, we need volunteers to help out at fundraising events, to give talks to groups and organisations and to manage the distribution of collection boxes. We're also keen to hear from individuals who have specific skills that can be utilised to help with fundraising.
We recently carried out a survey in which we found that the most significant reason for volunteering was the desire to give back to the community (83%), whilst 48% of respondents stated that meeting new people was a strong reason for volunteering, 19% indicated that their personal (direct or indirect) experiences of being rescued by the Air Ambulance was the key reason behind volunteering and 15% stated that they wanted to develop existing skills.
We are particularly keen to recruit new volunteers in the Alton, Alresford and Hedge End areas but would love to hear from anyone in Hampshire and The Isle of Wight. For further information please contact Volunteer Co-ordinator Kirsty Watts on
