On the 2nd February 2020 two of our volunteers visited Mrs Blossom Isreal to show her the New Response vehicle and present a bouquet of flowers to say thank you from our group.
The Rotary Club of Cannock said;
“On Sunday 2nd February the crew of the new first responder’s vehicle made very special visit to Mrs Blossom Isreal at The Grange Care Home to show her and members of the Rotary Club the new fast response vehicle which has very recently gone into full service in the area.
The Rotary Club of Cannock donated over £5100 towards the cost of purchasing the new vehicle in 2019. The money was raised from the Rotary Clubs Christmas collection in Cannock and a substantial legacy left to the Cannock club Trust Fund by the late Dr David Israel who had been an active Rotarian for over 30 years until he passed away in July 2018.
A spokesman from the Rotary Club of Cannock stated’ that by donating David’s legacy to this local medical emergency charity was very fitting seeing how Dr David Israel had himself served the local community of Cannock for so many years as a family doctor from his practice in Hednesford.
Burntwood & Cannock Chase Community First Responders – Covering Burntwood, Cannock, Hednesford, and Heath Hayes was formed 9 years ago when the West Midlands Ambulance Service identified the need for a community-based Emergency Response Service. The service is run by volunteers many working full time and responding in their spare time and on top of this, they regularly organise and support fundraising activities and provide free CPR and Defibrillator awareness sessions in their local communities including schools.
The new emergency vehicle has Dr David Israel name as part of the cars livery. Mrs Blossom Isreal was presented with a bouquet of Flowers by the crew of the vehicle, Blossom thanked the crew for talking time out of there busy schedule to show her the car named in memory of her late husband”
