The right response

The Bucks Masonic Centenary Fund has donated the cost of a volunteer emergency kit to Community First Responders, an emergency service that is often first on the scene of an incident. At £1,500 each, the kits contain equipment that is necessary for emergency life-saving action and trauma treatment.

Marc Lister, community liaison and training officer for South Central Ambulance Service, said, ‘Currently there are over 60 new volunteers in our area so there is a need for more volunteer emergency kits, and these require funding.’

Teddies Take to the Road

TLC – Teddy Loving Care – in Buckinghamshire has set the bears on the road to recovery now that they are being carried on local ambulances. Having seen the teddies at Wexham Park Hospital, Diane Free of South Central Ambulance Service contacted Bucks mason Alan Lines about their possible use to her ambulance service. Diane said, ‘The results are amazing. Entering a modern ambulance, with all its high-tech equipment, is very frightening for a child, even when mum or dad is present. Having teddy on board certainly calms things down, and reassures.’
