Royston Volunteer Centre manager Denise Graham’s regular look at the voluntary sector in North East Herts
Would you like to help the East Anglian Air Ambulance keep flying? You don’t need any flying experience, just a few hours of your time and lots of enthusiasm!
Volunteers are needed to raise awareness and funds for this 365 day-a-year lifesaving service whose dedicated and highly- skilled medical crews on specially-equipped helicopters have helped to save the lives of hundreds of people unfortunate enough to be involved in accidents or medical emergencies in this region.
Some volunteers give time on a regular basis while others help out occasionally. Every hour of time given can make a huge difference.
Regular volunteering opportunities include managing collecting tins in local shops or becoming a speaker to publicise the amazing work of this charity.

Not sure you can make a regular commitment? Well, there’s a local event coming up that you help at on a one off basis, so why not join in the fun and volunteer to help with one of the many family activities like fair rides, bouncy castles, face painting, children’s activity tent, a petanque tournament, craft stalls, treasure hunt, raffle and tombolas, or barbecue at the EAAA Lifesavers Family Fun Day on Saturday, September 12, from 12 noon at the Eternit Sports and Social Club, Meldreth.
The event includes the Blue Light Corner featuring the EAAA helicopter as well as police, fire and ambulance teams, blood bikers, RNLI supporters, community first responders and search and rescue dogs.
