Richard Heather

Richard is a volunteer for the Air Ambulance Service. It all started back for me in 2010. I signed up to take part in a 4x4 challenge. 11 countries in 9 days (3000 miles) and I had to decide what charity to do it for. I wanted to choose something local that anyone could need at any time. As I was thinking the Air Ambulance landed where I was working. After doing some research and realising that it flies solely on donations and sponsors with no government or lottery support I decided that’s the charity for me.

Heather is a Mum of 3 children my youngest son having Asperger’s (ASD). I signed up in November 2012. I was looking for part time work to fit around my children, whilst doing this I needed to rebuild my confidence but also wanted to put to use over 20 years of experience and skills gained within Sales, Customer Service and Administration roles. So decided I would take on a volunteer role.
