West Berkshire courier contributes to local rapid response team

West Berkshire’s rapid response team has received a gift – a brand new Volkswagen car from a local courier company – Swift Couriers.

This will now enable paramedic Paul Michell to respond to emergencies across the district.

Mr. Michell said: “People know if they dial 999 I can go out if the ambulance isn’t close enough, and they also know if they live in our community they can knock on my door, so this is really important to me.”

Adrian Smith, managing director of the Swift group said that the company had got involved to do something special in its 20th anniversary. “It’s such a worthy cause,” said Adrian.
