Strong presence for LIVES at county show


The life-saving Lincolnshire charity LIVES will have a strong presence at this year’s Lincolnshire Show, thanks, in part, to an anonymous donor.

The Lincolnshire Integrated Voluntary Emergency Service, or ‘LIVES’, will be represented across three stands when the annual celebration of rural Lincolnshire returns next week, running from June 24-25.

The charity, which is currently celebrating its 45th year, provides help in the minutes before ambulance crews arrive at the scene of an accident or emergency.

At the show, it will have displays at the stands of Thurlby Motors and Uncle Henry’s farm shop to raise awareness of its work. In addition, Uncle Henry’s - which won the ‘UK’s best sausage’ award on the BBC’s One Show with their Lincolnshire sausage - has created an ‘official LIVES sausage’ to sell at the show in support of the charity.

On top of this, The Lincolnshire Show, through an anonymous donor, has provided a large stand in the ‘Countryside’ area where visitors can meet the Responders and Medics and see the life-saving equipment they use.

Stephen Hyde fundraising manager at LIVES said: “We are delighted to be part of this year’s Lincolnshire Show, and we are incredibly grateful for the support we have received from Thurlby Motors, Uncle Henry’s and, of course, the Lincolnshire Show organisers.”

He added: “We will be hosting a number of demonstrations during the event. We hope it will encourage people to learn CPR, and help them appreciate the value of what we do within Lincolnshire.”
