We hope with our support the charity will continue to flourish for many years to come".
John Gibson, Day Operations Manager at SERV Suffolk and Cambridgeshire, said "Our organisation provides a life saving service throughout Suffolk and Cambridgeshire, saving the NHS an estimated £300,000 and more in transport costs to date. We are incredibly appreciative of One Broker’s support and enjoy working with their enthusiastic staff".
Treasurer of SERV Norfolk, Keith Grisedale, added "It costs £3400 each month to run SERV Norfolk therefore any donations the charity receives is crucial for us to continue our work. One Broker has been a great help in promoting the role of SERV Norfolk and we are very grateful for this donation".
