Support Your
Midlands Air Ambulance Charity

Become a virtual supporter

Due to the continuing restrictions resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, many of the typical ways people support our charity are temporarily no longer possible.

If you're looking to support our charity throughout this challenging time becoming a ‘virtual’ supporter is a great way to help raise awareness and funds for our lifesaving emergency service.

As a virtual supporter, you can:

  • Take part in online initiatives: For example, our virtual Tatenhill Airbase Open Day, taking place on Sunday 28th
  • Get involved on social media: Make sure you like us on Facebook and follow the organisation on Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn and encourage family and friends to do the same. Also, share and like any posts to help spread the word about its rapid response service.
  • Website support: For those not on social media, keeping up-to-date with the charity news on its website is a great way to show your virtual support.
  • If you happen to live on the flight path and see the charity’s helicopters flying over regularly, you could take pictures (where safe and legal to do so) of the aircraft and share them with the charity via social media.
  • Simply join our mailing list – to receive the free Take Off magazine and sign up to our regular update emails – email info@midlandsairambulance.com to sign up.

Donating your time and supporting us online really could help save a life.

Why volunteer with MAAC?

We pride ourselves in looking after our volunteers by providing flexible opportunities, putting them forward for awards and hosting quarterly meetings so they can meet other volunteers.

We have been awarded an Investors in Volunteers accreditation, which is a nationally recognised sign of excellence.

 

We asked our volunteers what it was like volunteering for MAAC, and these are the words they used:

 

Volunteer case study

Jon Sadler from Ledbury in Herefordshire, was airlifted by MAAC after suffering from a cardiac arrest at home in 2018.

Since then, Jon and his fiancee Laura have been fundraising and volunteering for MAAC at events.

Jon says: "I am so thankful and humbled by what happened to me – without a doubt the Midlands Air Ambulance saved my life. I love being able to volunteer and give something back."
