What will they do with the money if they win?
‘The group will use the funding to expand a project providing GPS tracking to vehicles called out in the local community during severe weather, allowing control room staff to respond to any issues quickly. This could include volunteers or care workers who are visiting patients at home, or nurses or doctors going to their place of work. The grant would be used to purchase new equipment and a mobile trailer unit, making it easier to deal with all rescue requests and support more people in need of its services.’
