Great Western Air Ambulance Charity

Name: Ground Crew Fundraising Volunteer
Organisation: Great Western Air Ambulance Charity
Location: 3rd Floor County Gates, Ashton Road, Bristol, North Somerset, BS3 2JH
Type: Part Time
Events and collections will be scheduled on an ongoing basis throughout 2019 but we don’t ask for any minimum commitment from our volunteers. You can sign up to as many events (or as few!) as you like. Some of our volunteers help twice a week, others twice a year – we are grateful for all the help we receive.

Description

We are looking for friendly, approachable and enthusiastic individuals to assist in a whole host of upcoming summer events - the hours once trained are totally flexible based on your availability and preferences. Some volunteers commit a few hours a week, some twice a year!

GWAAC couldn’t run without its army of volunteers and the support of people like you. We’re involved in hundreds of local events - whether it’s hosting a stall at a school fete, collecting in town centres or marshalling motorcycles at our Ride4Life, there are plenty of varied opportunities for our volunteers.

Could you offer just a few hours of your time as part of a dedicated team of staff and amazing volunteers working together to raise the £3 million necessary to keep the Great Western Air Ambulance Charity operational?
