“One of your responders was called out to my mother who had been taken seriously ill, I was  very impressed. I would like to make a donation to the local responders group.”

“I’m enclosing a cheque for £1000 in thanks for all the help you gave prior to my brother in law’s death. Your kindness and quick response was much appreciated.The crews are so kind.”

“I will never forget the kindness of the ambulance crew who attended this afternoon. I would like you to accept my donation of £50. Sorry it can’t be more – you all do such a brilliant job.”

“My experience of the ambulance service was deeply impressive.  Gentle but very strong, they manoeuvred me down some difficult stairs very fast, and did their best to deal with my quite intense pain.  I thought they were brilliant” John Simpson.
