If you are looking for a new challenge this year you could volunteer to help lthe East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) and play a part in continuing its lifesaving work. EAAA could not exist without the team of over 200 committed volunteers who continually dedicate their time and skills in many different ways.
A spokeswoman for the charity said: “We are hugely proud of all our volunteers and enormously grateful for the time that they have given over the last 15 years.
“In 2015, EAAA are looking to recruit more volunteers across the region to help us celebrate 15 years since the charity began. EAAA will be marking 15 years of service with commemorative events throughout the region, including ‘Tea at 15:00’ on May 15 at locations all over East Anglia.
“As a volunteer you will play a vital role in helping us to keep our two helicopters flying 365 days a year across East Anglia. We completely depend on our volunteers to support us in delivering our lifesaving services.
“Our volunteers choose the time that they can give to us, whether it is on a weekly basis or occasionally helping out at events. Every hour of time given to us makes a huge difference.
“There are plenty of opportunities, from organising your own events, to helping us for a few hours at one of our events across East Anglia. You could even spend your time volunteering behind the scenes at one of our seven offices, with anything from operations to communications.”
