Seven First Responders from Lincolnshire Integrated Voluntary Emergency Service (LIVES) will now receive training thanks to the donation.

To illustrate the difference the kit can make, LIVES staged a medical drama at the park in which its volunteers responded to a man experiencing chest pains.

First Responder Neil Chadwick (pictured) explained how speed and the correct life support action is vital to provide the best chance of a patient’s survival.

Tim Wells, owner at the park, said: “I think that everyone had their eyes opened to the amazing dedication and skills of LIVES volunteers.”
