The Suffolk Masonic Clay Shooting Society (SMaCSS) donate £3500 to Suffolk Accident Rescue Service
This year, the Committee of the Suffolk Masonic Clay Shooting Society decided to support the Suffolk Accident Rescue Service (SARS) as their main charity recipient. SARS are a local charity that receives no central government funding and relies heavily on donations from the general public and groups like ourselves. The charity provides specialist volunteer responders to assist the East of England Ambulance Service at the scenes of serious medical emergencies or trauma, its responders include anaesthetists, critical care paramedics and other clinicians with enhanced pre-hospital skills. These clinicians are authorised to carry specialist drugs and additional life-saving equipment not found on frontline ambulances. This means that SARS clinicians can provide an additional and advanced level of patient care that would not normally be available outside the hospital environment.
Over the last couple of years SMaCSS have had the benefit of the generous support of their members as well as that of guest shooters at the club’s regularly organised events which has enabled SMaCSS to donate £3500 to SARS. The £3500 donation will go towards the purchase of a much needed Zoll X-Series Monitor-defibrillator. The cost of this Monitor is in the region of £8000 and SMaCSS are delighted that the money raised and donated will go a long way in enabling SARS to have possession of one of these valuable pieces of life saving equipment.
