The team have recently purchased new helmets following a successful funding application
This purchase was made possible after we successfully applied for a grant from the Alpkit Foundation to purchase new helmets.
The new Manta Helmets from Future Safety ensure our responders are protected when working around road crashes, railway incidents or on unstable terrain.
Since lockdown, the team have seen a steady increase in calls. If our current trend continues, then the team is likely to have our busiest year to date.
Our Chair, Dr Graeme Spencer said:
“Our first priority is to protect our volunteer responders. If they become injured, they are no use to our patients. We are extremely grateful that the Alpkit Foundation chose our small charity and agreed to fund the purchases of some new helmets.”
