BASICS Devon volunteer Dr Marc Epps thanked the Asda Foundation and its staff and shoppers personally for their amazing donation of £200, which was raised through their in store Green Token Giving Scheme.
Brian Kidd, Community Champion at Asda Plymouth met with Dr Marc Epps to hand over the funds.
Dr Epps explains what it means for the charity, “As BASICS Devon is a local charity it means a lot to receive funding from the community it serves. I am delighted we have been presented with this cheque to support our volunteer doctors in the amazing work they do.”
This donation will make a real difference to the local community. It will help to ensure the volunteer doctors have current medical equipment and can continue to provide immediate access to specialist emergency medical care at the scene of illness or accident.
BASICS Devon receives no government funding and relies solely on donations and with call outs increasing by over 30%, the charity needs continued support such as this to continue to help save lives.
