Wurzels help lifesavers
The Wurzels will be playing live at Somerset County Cricket Ground next month to support Somerset Accident Voluntary Emergency Service.
The legendary Somerset band offered to do the gig on Friday, November 1 in aid of Somerset Accident Voluntary Emergency Service (SAVES). The service plays a vital role in saving lives across the county. Dedicated volunteer GPs from the service were among the first on the scene of the devastating M5 motorway crash on November 5, 2011, which resulted in the deaths of seven people and left many more injured.
The Wurzels will play at the annual charity dinner and auction to help raise funds for SAVES. GP volunteers with SAVES work with the ambulance service to provide immediate medical care to people who have become critically ill or, as in the case of the M5 crash, working side-by-side with ambulance paramedics to help those trapped or seriously injured.
SAVES is a registered charity which depends entirely upon the generosity of local people to provide the necessary funding to continue the support from its dedicated volunteer doctors.
The event starts at 7.30pm. Tickets are £45 and include a glass of wine and a three course meal. A fundraising auction will follow.
Tickets are available from Jackie Collings, SAVES fundraising coordinator (tel: 07886 630388) or by writing to: Somerset Accident Voluntary Emergency Service (SAVES). 65 Periton Lane, Minehead, Somerset. TA24 8AQ.
