A member of frontline staff from East Midlands Ambulance Service presented a ‘certificate of appreciation’ to 10-year-old Stamford girl Robyn Walters at an assembly today (Wednesday, June 29).

Earlier this year, Robyn decided to write to staff at her local ambulance station to pass on her heartfelt thanks and appreciation for the great work they do in the community.

Robyn hadn’t had to call 999 for help which made her gesture all the more notable. Her letter said: “I wanted to write to people to say thank you for their hard work or doing something amazing for people.”

Jed Bates, an EMAS emergency care assistant in Stamford wrote back to Robyn to let her know how pleased staff were to receive the letter. He also answered a few questions that Robyn had asked about working in the ambulance service.

Jared said: “It was a very pleasant surprise to get the letter from Robyn. It is so unusual to be thanked these days and for someone so young to express their appreciation makes it all the more special.”

Today, Jed and community engagement officer, Kirsty Latham presented Robyn with her certificate at the St Gilbert’s Primary School during the morning active worship assembly.

After the presentation, Jared and Kirsty spoke Robyn’s school friends about the work of the East Midlands Ambulance Service and give them important advice on when they should ring 999. Afterwards, the children saw an ambulance and looked at the range of equipment staff use to treat patients.
