About the Opportunity
Air Ambulance Northern Ireland (AANI) has been nominated as the charity for Causeway Coast Truck Fest on Sunday 20 August 2017. The event is held at the NW200 Pits in Portstewart from 10.00am to 4.00pm. A In the region of 600 trucks will be on show and at 4.00pm will tour around the NW 200 circuit. There will also be a family funday, live entertainment and celebrity guests, and trade village with food and craft stalls. Entry to the public is free and as the nominated charity AANI has been asked to provide 30 volunteers for the day to help with bucket collections.

The volunteer role offers supporters the opportunity to support your brand new charity and Helicopter Emergency Medical Service for Northern Ireland. AANI will bring urgent medical assistance anywhere in the province, operating 7 days a week during daylight hours. This brand new, life-saving service will launch summer 2017. It requires over £2m to keep flying, so volunteer support is crucial.

We are looking for volunteers to accept cash donations into an AANI collection bucket. Volunteers will be assigned an area within the pitts and circuit to collect. It is expected that the event will be extremely busy and so it is likely that you may need to go an empty the bucket back to a central source. Donations will be coming from members of the public.

The event is Sunday 20 August from 10.00am – 4.00pm. It is up to you if you can volunteer for the day or would prefer to volunteer for a couple of hours or half a day. If you do volunteer for the whole day then a lunch break will be provided.

Collecting will take place whilst the trucks are on display at the NW 200 pitts.
The convoy at 4.00pm will follow the NW200 race route taking in Coast Road; York Corner; University Corner; Ballysally Rounabout; Metropole Portrush. Collections will take place at these locations.
