When Sarah Manning, MD of Secure Stores Nationwide, met Gina Saunders from Suffolk Accident Rescue Service (SARS) at a Stowmarket Chamber of Commerce networking meeting earlier in the year she was hugely impressed to learn about the life-saving work of their volunteer paramedics and doctors.


‘I wasn’t really aware of SARS or their life-saving work – but when I heard Gina’s presentation I was keen to help them in any way I could.’ Sarah’s business supplies shipping containers for a wide variety of different uses, from offices and workshops to simple (or even customized) storage.



Gina immediately saw how that could be useful to SARS as the charity require a huge amount of medical equipment, and we need more kit every time we recruit a new responder. A lot of it is bulky – things like monitors, or manikins for CPR training sessions – so there’s always a need for additional space.



Sarah suggested that one of her containers could solve their problem. ‘It was such an obvious way to meet their needs – and SARS has a generous landlord at Woolpit Business Park, Bob Baker, who was happy to let SARS have some unused space on the site.’



SARS are so grateful for Sarah's support - it is really important and valuable when a business gives us an asset as useful as this one. We’re already making very good use of Sarah’s container, and she’s also doing a sponsored walk to raise funds for us in September. Thank you Sarah!
