SCOR puts safety first

Article from MSA News February 2012

Southern Counties Off Road Club (SCOR) has raised £1292 for both Hampshire & Isle of Wight Air Ambulance and Wiltshire Air Ambulance after exceeding a £770 target for a pair of new stretchers.

SCOR is a small but thriving club that has been running a full Trials and Safari calendar since it began in the mid-1980s. Medical cover for the club’s Clubman’s Safari events is provided by Hawk Safety Services, led by Eric Little, who approached SCOR following two incidents at Sidbury Hill in 2010, one of which led to the tragic loss of SCOR member Ray Kempster.

“Eric asked if he could pass round a collection bucket to help raise £770 for two new stretchers for his vehicle kit,” said SCOR’s Jane Dooley. “As safety is always the first consideration SCOR said the club would match any donations raised and set up its own collection. In just six events the £770 was raised, and a further £646 for Hampshire & Isle of Wight Air Ambulance and £646 for Wiltshire Air Ambulance.”
