“I am extremely honoured to have been asked to be patron to this wonderful charity. I have always had the utmost respect for everyone who has worked in International Rescue and there can be no better mission motto than that of “United to Save Life”. These guys put the lives of others first and often enough find themselves in areas of peril and danger.
I have had first-hand experience of being rescued from a military conflict and without the knowledge and expertise of those who transported me, I would not be alive today
Responding to man-made and natural disasters, the International Rescue Corps can within 24 hours, even less time sometimes, mobilise themselves and get to the scene of the disaster and save lives. This is not a 9 to 5 organisation. This is a 24 hour a day/7 day a week operation and all of the members of the corps are there for one reason – “United to Save Life”.
I would not only encourage people to donate to this fantastic organisation but to get involved too. Become a member and get involved in the training and you can become part of a rewarding team that changes and saves lives.
I look forward to working with the team and being part of great organisation”.
