Acclaimed Suffolk harpist, Danielle Perrett is performing two concerts at the end of October to raise funds for the Suffolk Accident Rescue Service (SARS).
One of these will take place at Holy Trinity Church, Long Melford on Saturday, October 27 at 7.30pm.
Danielle was inspired to act after hearing a talk from one of the charity’s volunteer doctors in Alpheton,
“The SARS doctor told us how their members who visit the scenes of accidents come out of their own generosity and altruism to attend in such circumstances.
“Living here in Suffolk we see beauty all around us and enjoy all the good that this county can bring us.
“But life is also unpredictable: accidents happen.
“This year a friend was killed and his wife suffered life changing injuries in a road accident and also another friend suffered a fatal heart attack all reminding me of the need for the best quality health care we can receive in such emergency situations.”
“We take these provisions for granted, but SARS has a constant pressure on its funding which is dependent on voluntary donations from people like you and me. I hope that these performances from me will help raise awareness of their important work and also raise vital funds so they can continue to help us.”
Tickets for the concert are £10 and include light refreshments. They can be bought in advance at Landers Bookshop, Hall St, Long Melford (01787 378 957) or at the door.
The other concert will take place the following afternoon at St Nicholas Church, Little Saxham.
Suffolk Accident Rescue Service (SARS) is an emergency medical charity established in 1972.
SARS provides specially trained doctors and paramedics to assist the East of England Ambulance Service at the scenes of serious incidents - both accidents and medical illnesses.
SARS responds to call outs in Suffolk and around its borders with Norfolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex. All the work undertaken by SARS doctors and paramedics is provided voluntarily without any cost to the patient, ambulance service or taxpayer.
