Devon Air Ambulance would once again like to take an opportunity to promote its ‘Supporter Promise’ at the same time as welcoming new Volunteer Manager, Cara Jones, to its team to support over 430 amazing volunteers.
After receiving questions on whether it pays its volunteers a cut of monies they collect, Fundraising Director Caroline Creer says “All our amazing volunteers donate their time and efforts day in, day out. They could be attending events, working in one of our 17 charity shops, collecting boxes or picking up a cheque at a presentation.”
She added “We’ve been asked a lot recently if we pay commission to our volunteers – no, we do not! Every single penny raised goes straight into the pot to keep Devon’s two Air Ambulances flying up to 17 hours a day. That’s why our volunteers are so amazing and we couldn’t achieve what we do without them.”
