Lifesaving charity Lives to mark 45 years with campaigns

Lifesaving charity Lives will celebrate its 45th anniversary with a range of events and campaigns in 2015.

The Lincolnshire-based medical charity was founded in 1970 by Dr Michael Cooper and Dr Richard Harper-Smith. In the years since it has become an essential part of Lincolnshire emergency care. The charity works to provide vital help in the first few minutes before an ambulance crew arrive. It gives a county-wide service and relies on volunteer responders and medics to be on call.

Fundraising manager Stephen Hyde said: “We are so excited to be celebrating our 45th anniversary and all we have achieved in those 45 years. During the year we will be trying to raise the awareness of Lives and the important work we do – the charity is a result of 45 years of hard work and brings communities in Lincolnshire together to make a difference.”

One of the key campaigns will be to encourage communities to invest in defibrillators.
