More than a thousand pounds has been raised for charity by West Midlands Ambulance Service staff who ran in Worcester’s 10km road race.
Emergency Medical Technician Nicky Masters who is based at the City’s ambulance hub raised £666 for the Midlands Air Ambulance. She earlier explained: “I wanted to do the run for a good cause and chose the air ambulance, as it is an obvious choice for us in the emergency services, I wanted to help promote awareness and raise money at the same time”. Joined by ambulance crewmate Andy Lightbody, Nicky completed the distance in an hour and fifteen minutes thrashing her self-imposed target of one-and-a-half hours. It was her first such run.
Paramedic Lisa Medhurst who is also based at Worcester raised £345 for the Lullaby Trust.
With the addition of gift-aid, the total is more than £1,200
