Lifesaving volunteers gifted new fully equipped lifesaving vehicle

PERSHORE Community First Responders have become the latest voluntary group to be supported by Arrive Alive with sponsorship from the Friends of Pershore Hospital.

The combination of two unique charities has enabled a lifesaving vehicle and equipment to become operational within the community of Pershore.

Steve Cooper from Pershore Community First Responders told Charity Today

“I am blown away by the support that has been given in making the dream of having a scheme car a reality. I cannot thank the two amazing charities that have made it possible enough. Arrive Alive and the Friends of Pershore are wonderful organisations making a massive difference to communities and people’s lives.”

The vehicle will be operated by medically trained volunteers and dispatched to 999 calls by West Midlands Ambulance Service within the local community. This will enable lives to be saved as the vehicle can be on scene within those vital minutes prior to a road or air ambulance due to being based directly within the community.

Debbie Roscoe from Arrive Alive said:

“It has been a true honour to work in conjunction with the Friends of Pershore Hospital, they have been instrumental in Arrive Alive being able to launch a lifesaving resource within the community of Pershore. It would not have been possible without the magnificent support from Michael Amies and the wonderful trustees of the Friends of Pershore Hospital. I would like to pass on a massive thank you from all of the Arrive Alive team for their support. Pershore Community First Responders have been an absolute joy to work with.”
