As an independent charity, Yorkshire Air Ambulance (YAA) relies on volunteers and their fundraising efforts to continue saving lives across the region. It currently costs £19,000 per day to maintain and operate the YAA’s two Airbus H145 Helicopters, based at Nostell Priory in Wakefield and RAF Topcliffe near Thirsk.
Volunteers are considered the beating heart of Yorkshire Air Ambulance, without whom, the charity would not be able to carry out its mission, to save as many lives across Yorkshire as possible. The contributions and presence of the selfless volunteers allow the charity to have such strong relationships within local communities, spreading positive word of mouth and raising awareness.
Why not give it a try and see what kind of impact you can make? Yorkshire Air Ambulance is currently looking for individuals, couples or small groups of friends to join their friendly team of volunteers across Yorkshire.
