Suffolk hotels pledge support for Suffolk Accident Rescue Service

Suffolk Accident Rescue Service (SARS) has been chosen by the TA Hotel Collection as the charity to benefit from their guest donation scheme for the next year.

The initiative allows guests staying at the Brudenell and White Lion hotels on Aldeburgh’s seafront to add a discretionary £1 charge to their bills when staying overnight.

Confirming both hotels support for SARS, Leanne Whyte front of house manager at the Brudenell Hotel said; “We are passionate about making a difference in our local community and are delighted to be helping this very worthwhile charity. We hope our guests will continue to show their generosity by joining with us in support of this important initiative.”

Ben Hall, general operations manager at SARS said; “We are extremely grateful for the support of the TA Hotel Collection this year. Suffolk Accident Rescue Service receives no central government funding and we rely on voluntary donations to support our work in and around Suffolk. These donations will help cover the costs of training and equipment for our volunteer responders who provide a vital and specialist emergency resource helping treat critically ill or injured patients before they reach hospital”.

The charity provides specialist doctors and paramedics to assist the East of England Ambulance Service at the scenes of incidents. For over 46 years it has provided a local and advanced pre-hospital resource on a voluntary basis for local communities attending thousands of incidents and helping to save hundreds of lives.
