ASBF - A Christmas and New Year Message from the Chairman

01 Dec 2012 8:05 PM | Anonymous member




“It is at this time of the year when I can reflect on the support that the charity has received from many ambulance services, their staff and many other generous people. In all honesty though, I would dearly wish that all the services would give their support to the ASBF, the only country wide ambulance charity. This would not only ensure that we continue in the provision of care for ambulance staff now but will help the charity move forward and develop care programmes up to the same level that is provided to personnel from the charities of the Fire, Police and the Military.”

My New Year message to all the UK Ambulance Services CEO’s is very simple. “Please take a lead in supporting the ASBF in your Trust and encourage your staff to raise funds by the many means available to them. This will ensure that we are able to meet our planned future aims and objectives of providing that extra help to those members of your staff to enable them to deal with that unforeseen personal crisis or period of hardship. We will be delighted to have the opportunity to meet you to explain and discuss our plans for the development of the ASBF.

I would like also to thank all the ambulance service magazines, journals and newspapers for publishing ASBF articles and messages and to those ambulance manufacturers and equipment suppliers for their continuing and generous support. We are so grateful. 

On behalf of the ASBF Trustees I thank everyone for their tremendous support and wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a Healthy and Prosperous New Year.”

ASBF Chairman, Paul Leopold.
