EMICS Chairman, Dr Tim Gray spoke at Vale of Belvoir Rotary Club to spread awareness of EMICS and the work we do. This is part of the letter of thanks we received after the event.
“Dr Gray, I know that one of your aims in order to raise awareness of EMICS, and of what you do, is to speak at organisations such as this. On behalf of the vale of Belvoir Rotary club I can confirm that you have certainly done that tonight.
You not only travel to the scene of emergency events to help and save lives – without the facilities of a trauma unit and a hospital around you. You obtain all your income from charitable donations. On top of this, your trustees and doctors invest their own time in raising funds for the charity. Whilst they, the doctors are unpaid in giving up their free time; and they cover the cost of their training.
Keeping an organisation running of 26 people; whilst at the same time ensuring you have sufficient funding to support all this, is not easy. And we understand that you see a need to increase the level of service provided.
It is good to note that your contribution to the community has been recognised by the highest authority in the UK – with an MBE.”
