The mysterious company responsible for leaving quite a few ‘thank you’ cards with £10 notes in them is still helping to uplift the morale of medics in the south east of England…
Whilst we have previously been contacted by someone connected with the company concerned, we have no idea who the generous business is or how many more ‘thank you’ notes they have left.
At least ten of the notes have so-far been found by medics when they return to their emergency ambulances having either dropped off a patient to A&E or having finished dealing with an emergency (or 111) call.
Two of the most recent recipients of free coffee and cakes were two happy medics working for South Central Ambulance Service (SCAS).
In a tweet, SCAS said:
“We knew that they were awesome, but Sophie & Dan from our Basingstoke base found a lovely note from a mystery person on their truck this PM telling them it too!
“Thank you for gifting us with our coffee money
“It was the loveliest gesture to receive and really made our day!”.
In a message sent to our page by a follower, it was pointed out that SCAS seem more ‘willing’ to allow their hardworking and dedicated staff to keep hold of the kind gestures than their oppos in the London Ambulance Service (LAS).
LAS Crews have also been the lucky recipients of these notes which are coming from the same donor, but LAS staff have been told to hand over the money to their supervisors.
There can be little denying that these random acts of kindness are going a long way to ignite the morale of the men and women on the thin green line.
And it’s heartwarming to know that a private company values the work of emergency ambulance personnel to the point where they are happy to share some of their profits with these life-saving medics.
And I am sure that if LAS management did decide to let their crews keep these notes, then it would go down very well with their staff…..#JustSaying!

Before you go...
We need your help. As former emergency services & armed forces personnel, we pride ourselves on bringing you important, fast-moving and breaking news stories which are free from the negative bias which is often directed at the emergency services by some sections of the mainstream media.
One of the reasons we started 'Emergency Services News' was because we became tired of reading badly informed stories about the emergency services which seemed only ever to highlight negative aspects of the job.
We want to be the unheard voice of the remarkable men and women who serve in the emergency services, NHS and armed forces. And with around 500k page views each month, we are getting there!
As income from ads, the mainstay source of income for most publishers, continues to decline; we need the help of our readers.
And remember, if you have a service, product or job vacancy that you would like to promote to our large readership, then you can buy advertising space in our articles.
You can support emergency services news from as little as £1. It only takes a minute. Every contribution, however big or small, is vital for our future.
Please help us to continue to highlight the life-saving work of the emergency services, NHS and armed forces by becoming a supporter.
