Wednesday 14th May 2014 – 4.20pm – Chris Kowalik.
Three members of West Midlands Ambulance Service staff based in Worcester are to take part in the city’s 10k race.
Emergency Medical Technician Nicky Masters and paramedics Lisa Medhurst and Andy Lightbody will be running in the Worcester City 10k race on Sunday 1st June.
For Nicky it will be the first such run. She will be raising money for Midlands Air Ambulance. She will be joined by her current ambulance crewmate Andy.
Nicky said: “I have recently been encouraged to join the 10k run with a group of friends who have been training together. I then decided to do it for an amazing cause and chose the Air Ambulance, an obvious choice for us in the emergency services. I wanted to help promote awareness and raise money at the same time. My ex-ambulance crewmate Colin Apps has been part of the air ambulance team for some years and has been my inspiration.”
On her JustGiving fundraising page, she said: “I’ve now worked for the West Midlands Ambulance Service for just over 5 years and see first-hand the incredible work that my friends/colleagues do each day to save lives. Please can you show your appreciation by making (even a small donation) to this very worthy cause, as every single penny counts.”
Lisa Medhurst will be running to fundraise for The Lullaby Trust. She said on her JustGiving fundraising page: “I cannot imagine what it would be like to lose a child … this charity try and help people deal with that unimaginable nightmare.”
