Lichfield darts players donate money to ambulance staff in memory of player

A Lichfield darts league has donated money to West Midlands Ambulance Service in memory of a former player.

Lichfield and District Ladies Darts League visited the city’s ambulance hub to present £460 after Mandy Perks died last August.

Her husband and the darts team she played for were keen to do something in Mandy’s memory to thank the local ambulance crews.

Marion Toon, chair of the league, visited the ambulance hub with treasurer Alison Fisher and secretary Jenny Sawyer to officially present the donation to assistant area manager Michelle Kelly on Tuesday (March 14).

Marion said: “Last year we tragically lost Mandy, who unfortunately died really young. Her husband asked us if we would donate money to West Midlands Ambulance Service’s Lichfield hub as they were so helpful when he dialled 999 in August.

“It’s been very nice to come and visit the Lichfield hub and we hope the money comes to some use to our local ambulance staff.”

Michelle said the money would be used to support staff using the hub.

“It’s been really nice to meet the ladies from the local darts league and we thank them for their kind donation,” she said.

“This money is very much appreciated and will be put towards the social side of the hub for items such as tea, coffee and study books for our ambulance staff.”
