Dying 2 Drive initiative - Herefordshire and Ludlow College

We will have the West Midlands Air Ambulance Pod to have a look around. See the poster below for all the details.

Dying2Drive Poster_A4.jpg

The day evolved starting with the emergency services arriving at the College to a stationary car and volunteer casualties who all acted as a scene of an accident when such an incident happens on our roads.   Over 20 minutes the students witnessed how the emergency services work together to release casualties.    Angela Tyler then spoke about losing her only child in her car accident nearly 8 years ago on the 30th September 2010.   

We would personally like to thank Herefordshire & Ludlow College for supporting the charity to host the Dying 2 Drive event.  All the emergency services who helped and volunteered to support us, Hereford Police Cadets, Like Radio, Co-op Food, Funeralcare and Insurance, West Midlands Air Ambulance, IAM, DHL Transport Training, Safer Road Partnerships, Herefordshire Council Road Safety, 3D Driving Awareness  and the ELY Race Club.   

Lastly to all the students and staff who supported ELY on the day.

We had the most wonderful evening listening to Martin Firman!   The room fell silent as Martin took us into his night on duty and being held at gun point. We also held a short quiz to test everyone's knowledge and we had a raffle.   We raised £400 on the evening with thanks to the supporters and businesses on the night.   Special thanks to Martin for sharing his story and all his help to make the evening such a success.   We would also like to thank Dave Iles for making the room, lighting, sound and visual look fabulous.   Finally, Hereford Football Club and Stage Coach for supporting the evening.

We would like to thank all our supporters and golfers for making the ELY Charity Golf day, a day to remember!   We raised £3,230.00 for ELY!     We had many businesses supporting us on the day either by donating prizes or sponsorship of golf holes.   @StirlingofHereford offered 4 x  "Hole in One" prizes one being a Swift Suzuki SZ3, unfortunately no-one won, but Stuart Phillips hit the Pin!!  May be next year we will have a lucky winner.   Thanks to @Burghill Valley Golf Club for allowing ELY to host our event as well as Andy & James from the Pro Shop who helped with score cards and looked after our Thorne Widgery Golf Ladies who entered for the first time taking part in a golf competition.  They did extremely well - hopefully this has given you the golf bug for next years event.     Special thanks to Mal Tyler who sought raffle prizes, golf hole sponsors and teams for the event, without your help it would be a different day altogether.    Finally to the ELY girls who worked hard all day to make sure all our golfers new exactly what they were doing, selling raffle tickets etc, you did an amazing job!   Hopefully next year I may be able to play in the event, watch this space-  thank you all again truly a day to remember !   Ange & Steve x
