This opportunity is ongoing, with no end date. Closing date for applications is 15 Aug.

We are having a special event day at Meadowhall Shopping Centre on Saturday 18th August. The event will be family focused and aimed at giving information about emergency services. A large element of what is needed is volunteers to wear our mascot around 10 minutes at a time with lots of breaks inbetween. We have Percy Pilot or Polly Paramedic! This is a very fun role and great to interact with the public while dressed up! You will be supporting the charity on a very big day!
