Why Volunteer with Children’s Air Ambulance?
Whatever your age if you need the services of an Air ambulance it is usually a matter of life and death. For children, the Children’s Air Ambulance does an amazing job flying critically ill children from across the UK to the hospital that has the specialist facilities that will save their lives. Because every second counts, the helicopter not only takes children to safety around four times faster than transport by road, it also provides intensive care in the air.
Without valuable fund raising by volunteers none of this would be possible.
At the present time the Children’s Air Ambulance Charity Shop in Marlowes, Hemel Hempstead is looking for volunteers for the following posts:
Volunteer Retail Assistants – You will undertake a variety of tasks ranging from helping to serve customers, working behind the scenes to sort and price donations, visual merchandising and general tidying. Reliable help is needed every day of the week but they are particularly need people who can spare at least 1 morning/afternoon or 1 day a week on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays or Sundays.
Volunteer Social Media Manager – A creative person is needed to take photos of merchandise for their social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. No formal experience is required but you do need to be able to undertake the role with minimal guidance. Some of this role can be done from home but you will be expected to spend a couple of hours a week in the shop to take photos and work with the manager in the office. As this can be any day of the week, this could be valuable work experience for a teenager (16+). You must have a smart-phone with camera and preferably a laptop computer.
Qualified PAT Tester – Donated electrical items have to be tested before they are sold to the public so if you are a qualified PAT tester and can spare just an hour or two per week (on any day) your help would be much appreciated.
Interested? Apply through the Volunteer Centre at The Roundhouse, Marlowes, Hemel Hempstead 01442 247209 / 01442 214734 www.volunteerdacorum.org
