How can you get involved? 

SARS has a small staff and volunteer team which means we can respond flexibly to your needs. Here are some examples of how you can help us and how we can help you… 


Each year SARS volunteer responders are mobilized to numerous serious incidents in locations across Suffolk. One of the key benefits that our clinicians can bring to patients is additional specialist equipment and drugs; this enables them to undertake life-saving interventions that would not normally be possible outside the hospital environment. Your business can sponsor the cost of these vital pieces of equipment and help save lives. 

A brand new emergency response vehicle was donated to SARS by local firm, Smarter Metering Services (SMS) and its sister company Gas Emergency UK Ltd. This amazing act of generosity has helped us expand our fleet of team vehicles and base one team RRV in East Suffolk aswell as one in West Suffolk. Thank you to Tom Ward and his team who are also covering the running costs and maintenance of the vehicle!

Exchanging ideas 

SARS focuses on effective volunteering and welcomes different perspectives. We are a small charity and are always glad to call upon the expertise of corporate partners in areas where we lack resources and knowledge. We like to use our expertise and experience to help educate the public in areas directly relevant to our prehospital work. We would be happy to offer CPR awareness sessions to your staff and bespoke in-house presentations on emergency scenarios differing from standard first aid training courses.

Promoting good work 

By adopting SARS as your charity partner or by sponsoring one of our fundraising events you can not only promote the value of your own business to local people but also help us raise awareness of our work. 

Ensuring your charitable giving has a local relevance 

SARS is a local charity. Our volunteers are based in Suffolk and provide an enhanced level of immediate medical care to critically ill or injured patients in their catchment area. If you are a Suffolk business you can be assured that your charitable giving will be having a genuine impact locally and is likely to resonate with your staff. Supporting a smaller charity like SARS is a great way to motivate your workforce and encourage creative ideas.

Whatever your need please get in touch via or call us on 01359244186 to have an initial discussion and we can progress from there.
