Charity fun day in Bungay helps local charities
EAST Anglian Air Ambulance and Waveney Valley Community First Responders benefited from Tubes Scaffolding's second charity fun day held at Bungay Football Club.The total raised was �1,452.20 which has been divided between the two nominated charities.
Keith Sillett, personnel manager of Tubes Scaffolding, based at Earsham, presented a cheque to Hannah Clay of East Anglian Air Ambulance.
Steve Hammond, group co-ordinator of Waveney Valley Community First Responders, said that he would like to use the money raised to purchase satellite navigation systems for his group.
The Waveney Valley Community First Responder group operates in Harleston and several villages on both sides of the river Waveney, with life saving equipment based in both Fressingfield and Harleston. The busy team of Ambulance Trust trained volunteers have dealt with 170 emergency calls so far this year.
Mr Hammond said: 'This is a wonderful gift that will enable us to buy new equipment that will help save vital minutes, being able to pinpoint an address accurately is sometimes difficult and this equipment will be a great help.'
