West Midlands Ambulance Service has posted a ‘thank you’ message to a mystery donor who offered to pay for an ambulance crews dinner.
During a busy shift, Sophie and her crewmate were in Chelmsley Wood treating a patient and had left their emergency ambulance nearby.
After finishing the call, they returned to their vehicle only to find that a brown envelope had been left on their windscreen.
On the note, there was a handwritten message which said:
‘Merry Xmas. Dinner on me. You do an amazing job.’
A spokesperson for WMAS said:
‘We have no idea who left [the envelope], but just wanted to say a big # thank you for your kind words and the generous contents.
‘Such acts of kindness go a long way at the moment.’
