Still time to get the calendar that saves LIVES in our county

There is still time to get your LIVES calendar to help raise vital funds for the Lincolsnhire charity.

LIVES First Responders has already had to order a second print run of the 2013 calendar after selling all of the original 500 produced.

This is the first time LIVES have launched a calendar, which features scenes of Lincolnshire, but the charity it will help raise awareness of its work and some of the £820,000 it costs each year to operate.

Steve Hyde from LIVES said: “The way things are going this year we will go to over 20,000 emergency calls this year and can you imagine Lincolnshire without LIVES.

“We need that support. We need to raise that money and as we get bigger it costs more to keep going.

“I went to an 18 month year old baby the other day. People think we only go to older people, but the other day I attended two calls involving 15-year-olds, but we do seem to only get support from the elderly and they cannot always afford it.”

Steve hopes that the calendar, available in A4 and slimline sizes, will appeal to all age groups and will not only raise funds for LIVES, but raise awareness of the first responders role.

Each page of the calender includes a different fact or piece of information about the charity.

If successful, Steve hopes this will be the first of many LIVES calenders to be produced in the years ahead.

He added: “It costs over £820,000 a year, minimum, to keep us running and we want to expand. What cost do you put on a life?”

You can get hold of your copy of the calendar by visiting the Rasen Mail office at Rasen Hub in Union Street. It costs £4.50.
