Help us reach our target

Thursday 23rd July 2015 – 8.30am – Chris Kowalik.

Paramedics and Emergency Medical Technicians based at Worcester’s ambulance hub are to do the Three Peaks Challenge in aid of Midlands Air Ambulance next month.

On Saturday 29th August, Technician Neil Gibson and Paramedics Giles Griffiths and Simon Tacey, and Giles’ partner Jocelyn Brooks (a sports psychologist at Worcestershire County Cricket Club) will aim to climb the highest peaks of Scotland (Ben Nevis), England (Scafell Pike) and Wales (Snowdon) within 24 hours.

They will be supported by a team of drivers consisting of Worcester-based Emergency Medical Technician Martin Sharpe, Paramedic Area Support Officer Dave Macdonald and West Bromwich-based Paramedic Sarah Kent.

Their aim is to raise at least £2,500; the approximate average cost of sending an air ambulance to one incident.

Rygor Mercedes in Kidderminster is supporting the team by providing a minibus. If you would like to help them too, visit http://fundraising.midlandsairambulance.com/3peaksaug2015worcesterambulancestationteam . Follow them on facebook: www.facebook.com/MAA3peaks2015
