The Rapid Relief Team recently teamed up with the London Ambulance Service to deliver personalised snack boxes to courageous key workers. 

RRT donated the snack boxes to the London Ambulance Service in thanks for their heroism, dedication, and compassion during the pandemic. Each one of the boxes contained a range of tasty snacks, from flapjacks and iced coffee to artisan crisps, in addition to a personalised note of thanks from the RRT to help keep morale and energy high.

The London Ambulance Service is the busiest emergency ambulance service in the UK and has been working flat out through the winter to support Londoners in need of emergency medical support.  When infection rates were surging at the beginning of the year, there were record volumes of 999 calls with up to 8,500 a day compared with around 5,500 on a typically busy day.

RRT volunteers were delighted to help the London Ambulance Service given the vital work they have been doing during the pandemic in the community.

Vern Pollard, Regional Team Leader at the Rapid Relief Team London and a member of the Plymouth Brethren Christian Church, said: “Ambulance services have been on the frontline of the UK’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic, and we wanted to show our appreciation for their lifesaving work with this small gesture of thanks”.

The support from RRT was gratefully received from the London Ambulance Service. Nicky Shipp, Wellbeing Facilitator at London Ambulance Service, said: “The continued support from the public and from groups like RRT means a lot to us and our crews. We would like to say thank you to RRT for this donation, which we are very grateful for.”
