Volunteer for Wales Air Ambulance

Our volunteers are an integral part of the Wales Air Ambulance; they provide additional knowledge, skills and ongoing help that supports the Charity across our functions, whether attending fundraising events in the community, helping in our shops or acting as Trustees.

We would not be able to provide our lifesaving services without our volunteers and we trust that you will enjoy your time with us in whatever capacity that you can help with.




"Our volunteers are the backbone and the heart of our Charity, they help us to achieve our goals and they are fundamental in raising the funds which enable us to save lives across Wales.

We are proud to work with a diverse team of volunteers who bring a range of skills and experience and who support us to carry out our vital work.

We hope that you will find your time with us to be enjoyable and rewarding, and that you will feel part of our committed team."



When it comes to volunteering, Gillian Naylor has it all sewn up.

The former hairdresser and hotelier has been helping out at our Caernarfon shop since February last year (2022).

But, while she loves working in the shop and meeting people, Gillian also has a useful talent.

A love of crocheting led her to offer to make some beautiful homemade items to sell to discerning customers.

And they have sold like hot cakes!

Gillian has always made blankets, but she has recently created bobble and beanie hats for the shop and even repaired and decorated a cracked vase with a crocheted sunflower.

The volunteer has a particular eye for creating useful or unusual objects. She said: “I look at something and I think ‘I could do something with that. I could use that.’ “

The items practically walk out of the store, but it is not just the creative side that appeals to Gillian.

She said about her volunteering:

“I love it. I love speaking to people – people that come into the shop who need advice and want to buy something. A lot of people come in for a chat.”

For Gillian volunteering is a useful outlet for her creativity, but it is also a chance for her to help what she sees as a very good cause.
