Members of the Swaffham Lionesses club have made a £250 donation to the Norfolk Accident Rescue Service (NARS), after receiving a talk about the charity’s work.

Group members travelled to the Dereham ambulance station to make the presentation after NARS chairman Dr Chris Neil and communications officer Paul Strutt addressed a recent meeting.

The presentation focused on NARS’ history and the work now being done to help raise both its profile and funds.

The charity works alongside the emergency services to help people affected by major incidents, such as fires or road traffic collisions.

The group were also shown the charity’s rapid response vehicle, which is based at Dereham and carries a wide range of vital equipment to be used for treating patients after an emergency incident.

Dr Neil and Mr Strutt accepted the donation from club president Susan Ashton, alongside president-elect Karen Nye and fellow Lioness members Suzanne Butterworth and Rosemary Skea. Also present was the Breckland District Council chairman, Gordon Bambridge. Picture submitted
