Chair of the Suffolk Accident Rescue Service (SARS) Dr Pam Chrispin hopes more volunteers can help their cause after 2013 saw an increase in the number of call outs.

The emergency medical charity, established in 1972, attended 290 calls of assistance from the ambulance service, an increase of 56 on the previous year.

Dr Chrispin said: “It’s a testament to the outstanding dedication of our volunteers that they are willing to sacrifice their spare time and get up at all hours to help critically ill or injured people in their local community. We hope that they and others can help us again this year, as the need for our specialist resource remains high.”
