Following the Broadband Summit meeting, Dr Dan was delighted to visit a team of dedicated East Anglian Ambulance technicians from East Suffolk who has come together to create a "naked" fundraising calendar, in memory of their dear friend and colleague, Gary Smithen. Gary sadly lost his fight against cancer earlier this year, whilst still in service, and colleagues wanted a way of remembering Gary whilst raising money for his chosen charities.
Dr Dan was delighted to launch the Blue Light Flashers calendar, commenting that it was a fantastic way to pay tribute to Gary and recognising the fantastic job which Paramedics do each and every day saving lives and working tirelessly to care for those in need.
Dr Dan wishes the team every success with their fundraising efforts.
