October 2014: A service to celebrate the life of Donald Wright

One of our most loyal volunteers for 20 years, we were proud to carry Don on his final journey in one of his favourite Heritage Ambulances. With our Two Motorcycles an escort was provided to the Crematorium to await the fly over of the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance before the service. Don was a great person to work with at both Retford Ambulance Station and as Liaison Officer at Kings Mill hospital.
