LIVES – Support needed from all local Lincolnshire councils
I work for the charity LIVES who I am sure you have heard of before. We provide a rapid 999 medical emergency response throughout the whole of Lincolnshire. Our army of volunteer Community First Responders are based in the heart of their communities which means they are able to arrive before an ambulance 81% of the time, being there for local Lincolnshire residents when minutes matter. Regardless of how the coronavirus develops, medical emergencies do not stop. Communities and other services rely on the support and care that LIVES provides. The residents of Lincolnshire will still suffer cardiac arrests, have diabetic episodes and strokes, children will still get sick and road traffic accidents will still happen.
We rely on £1.4million in public donations each year to do this and due to the coronavirus, we have had to cancel or postpone fundraising activity, training courses and events that would help us generate income to keep our volunteer Community First Responders on the road.
This is relevant to all Lincolnshire communities and we really do need your help to spread this message.
