THE Midlands Air Ambulance Charity (MAAC) is thanking its team of volunteers and encouraging new recruits as part of National Volunteers’ Week celebrations.

The charity, which turned 30 years old in May, is already planning further anniversary celebrations for its family of more than 220 volunteers and supporters.

Volunteers’ Week, which takes place from June 1 to June 7 is a time to showcase those selfless individuals who support vital charities and organisations.

MAAC relies on volunteers to assist with Covid-safe fundraising activities, ranging from hosting events and supporting in the charity shops to attending networking sessions, providing talks and receiving cheques at presentations.

Alison Hill, volunteer manager for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, said: “We are incredibly lucky to have a dedicated supporter base including a committed family of volunteers who ensure our lifesaving service continues to operate. We thank each and every one of them for making so many missions possible each year.

“We are always looking to recruit new volunteers and can offer a range of differing opportunities depending on what people can commit to. We have recently been reaccredited with the Investors in Volunteers award and are proud of the varied volunteering experience we offer.”
