Summary

As a collection tin volunteer, you will play a vital role in supporting us to raise our profile and fundraise within your community.

Detailed description

You will look after the Magpas Air Ambulance collection tins within a designated area, replacing full tins and returning them to an agreed location. You can also help us by finding new locations in which to place tins. These collection tins are an important part of how we raise money, raising approximately £20,000 per year.


As a collection tin volunteer, you will be expected to:

  • Represent Magpas Air Ambulance in a respectful and friendly manner
  • Understand the work of Magpas Air Ambulance, having basic knowledge and enthusiasm for our service
  • Wear your Magpas Air Ambulance ID badge, ensuring it's visible at all times
  • Travel to your collection tins (on two or four wheels). Where motorised vehicles are used, you must hold a full UK driving license, have a road-worthy vehicle with up-to-date road tax, MOT certificate (where applicable) and fully comprehensive insurance.
  • Establish the regularity of required tin collections in your area, keep a log of your activities and feedback to the Supporter Care Officer
  • Proactively replace full collection tins as needed and deliver them to an agreed location within one working day of collection
  • Place new tins in locations within your area, ensuring they are accurately labelled with the location and organisation's name
  • Inform the Supporter Care Officer of any new tins placed or any changes, helping us to ensure records are accurate and kept up to date
  • Follow all Magpas Air Ambulance policies and procedures, including reporting any accidents and incidents
  • Recognise, respond to, and report any safeguarding issues or concerns


What to expect from us:


  • Regular support and advice from our staff team
  • Expenses covered in line with our volunteer policy
  • On-the-job training specific to your role
  • Events where you can meet other volunteers and share ideas
  • Impressive skills to add to your CV and a reference if/when you need it
  • The opportunity to meet like-minded people
  • We are an equal opportunity organisation and welcome volunteers with diverse abilities



As well as joining the Magpas Air Ambulance family, you will make new friends and be an important connection within your community, representing the work of a lifesaving team.

About Magpas Air Ambulance

Magpas Air Ambulance provides the very best pre-hospital emergency care, in the air or on land, including treatments usually only available in hospital. Operating 24/7, we answer on average four calls for help a day, treating around 900 patients in life-threatening emergencies every year.

Magpas Air Ambulance serves the communities of Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and across the East of England and is dispatched by both the East of England and the East Midlands Ambulance Service Trusts—caring for a population of over 10 million.

Our advanced medical team combines the skills of a senior doctor and critical care paramedic on every shift. All members of the team are specially trained in Pre-Hospital Emergency Medicine (PHEM), and support the ambulance service by bringing advanced medical care directly to their patients’ side when time is of the essence.

We receive no regular state funding and rely on generous public donations to continue saving lives.
