Devon Air Ambulance needs a community of volunteers to keep its 19 charity shops open and our helicopters flying. The great thing about volunteering in our retail shops is that we have a role to suit everyone, whether you are young or older, an outgoing type or someone who likes to work behind the scenes.
As with all volunteering roles you can choose where, when and for how long you volunteer.
To find out more about your nearest shop and how you can help, please contact our Volunteer Cara Jones on 01392 304343 or email@example.com
Shop locations all over Devon.
