Christmas comes early for Tewkesbury!Posted in Donation, News, Tewkesbury on November 30th, 2010 by Robert Jervis – Be the first to comment
SARA Tewkesbury recently took delivery of an equipment donation from Ferno UK Ltd. We had been in discussions with Ferno and had been promised some assistance, but never in our wildest dreams did we think the donation would be so generous.
The team unpacked the delivery to find it included a Rescue Pathway, Scoop Stretchers, Spine Boards, Head Immobilisers, 46 Meters of New England Rope, Medical Boxes, a Basket Stretcher and various other rescue equipment.
If we had to purchase this equipment, we estimate it would have cost in excess of £4000. SARA Tewkesbury would like to thank Ferno UK Ltd for their hugely generous rescue equipment donation and the crew have already started to use the equipment in training.
Donations like this make all the difference to voluntary rescue teams, and this donation will make a real difference to the service we can provide to local people. If you can help support the Rescue Station, please contact Sarah Kneath, Chairman, Tewkesbury Rescue Station (firstname.lastname@example.org)
