Help us to save lives within communities.

Andy Jeynes Community Response Manager for West Midlands Ambulance Service UNHSFT said

''2020 has been a challenging year for the NHS Ambulance Service and we were grateful that our Volunteer Responders continued to support the Ambulance Service through these extraordinary times by attending over five and a half thousand 999 calls in the last 12 months. In Community Response we begin 2021 with two hills to climb. Firstly COVID restrictions are still here which present even greater challenges and secondly West Midlands Ambulance Service are currently in the midst of the largest Community First Responder campaign the Trust has ever planned. Over the next twelve months we are hoping to double the number Volunteer Responders in the Community. This is a huge task and one that is made easier by the continued support of our Volunteer Responder Schemes and the Charity “Arrive Alive” who have committed to providing Response Vehicles for our volunteers. I would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank-you to Arrive Alive for playing their part in building a Resilience to keep our responders mobile and to support our patients, their Community and the wider NHS.''

I’ve not been on a bike for years… but I’m gonna jump on one (luckily a stationary one, so I don’t fall off) and help in cycling the length of Le Tour De France 🇫🇷 a whopping 3,365.8km at Touchwood.

If you could spare a few quid, that would be nice.

Join us for the exciting 24-hour Tour De France event at Touchwood next month!

We need your help raising funds for local charity @Arrive_AliveUK.

Grab an hour on a stationary bike & help us cycle the length of Le Tour De France on 4th–5th Feb.
