Ball for lifesaving service is huge success
A lifeline service that provides immediate trauma care at life-threatening emergencies is celebrating after raising just over £10,000 at their inaugural charity ball.
East Midlands Immediate Care Scheme organised the ball at Greetham Valley on Friday and 184 guests packed in to enjoy a fun evening.
"The ball went extremely well," said Sue Bussingham, fundraising team member.
"It was our inaugural ball and we were absolutely thrilled with the amount of money that we raised.
"The evening raised just over £10,000 which is fantastic.
"It costs £6,000 to get a new doctor on the road.
"There are currently 23 doctors and seven new ones in the process of joining but it costs money to purchase the medical equipment and to equip the car with the blue lights and the sirens."
Emics is a nominated charity at this year's Loughborough Santa Dash on December 2.
