Newham ambulance staff pledge time to charity
Newham ambulance staff have pledged to donate one hour’s pay or to fund raise for 60 minutes to help our heroes.
The service launched its three-month campaign, which is part of the national Help for Heroes appeal, at Newham Ambulance Station in East Ham last week (05/09).
Newham paramedic John McAllister said: “As an ex-military soldier myself, I know the tough job the armed forces are doing in serving our country.
“Many of my colleagues value the important job Help for Heroes does for our servicemen and women and I’m sure they’re happy to give one hour to help the wounded soldiers in their long road to recovery.”
London Ambulance Service chief executive Peter Bradley added: “Many of our staff served in the armed forces before joining the ambulance service and are still going out to war zones as part of the Territorial Army.
