Tributes have been made to Barry England, the East of England Ambulance Service paramedic who sadly died last month after contracting COVID-19.
Barry had spent 33 years of his life helping countless people during a career that spanned over three decades.
He was a much-loved and highly respected member of the East of England Ambulance Service team and saved many lives during his distinguished career.
At the time, A spokesperson for EEAST said:
“Barry was a Leading Operations Manager in Hemel Hempstead and a hugely valued friend and colleague.
“Barry tested positive for COVID-19. We offer our sincere condolences to Barry’s family, friends and colleagues at this very difficult time.
“The Trust is offering its support to Barry’s family, and we will not be making any further announcements at this stage”.
A JustGiving page has now been set up to support Barry’s family.
Ben Jacobs, from the West Hertfordshire Management Team, said:
“We have been acutely aware of the desire from colleagues/friends to begin a donation for Barry’s family to help them through this devastating time.
“Barry’s family have kindly agreed to this, we have also agreed with them that all donations will be given passed to them, and they will decide how best to use the kind donations.
“Thank you to everyone for your support during this incredibly tough time”.
If you would like to help support our in-house team of former emergency services, NHS and armed forces personnel, then please consider becoming a donor.
With ad revenue continually fluctuating, we need the help of our readers and supporters to ensure that we can continue to bring you the stories which matter in a non-biased and non-inflammatory way.
Our Editor & Founder will send a personal email to donors, thanking them for their generosity.
