We held an afternoon tea party for LIVES (Lincolnshire Integrated Voluntary Emergency Services), which included a 45th Birthday cake, complete with their logo.
LIVES is our nominated charity and Ellie, the Ruskington paramedic gave a talk on her duties and equipment. Our £1200 donation from the Residents purchased the mascot (Dexter) which will help in collecting further donations. The remainder of the money was used to purchase equipment needed in the Ruskington area. Many of the Residents also had their photo taken with the 7foot tall Dexter.
The park has now donated over £12,000 to LIVES. LIVES medically train locally based volunteers who aim to be with patients within 5-6 minutes of a 999 call.
