Car crash victim to raise money for first responders who saved her life

A woman who suffered dreadful injuries in a car crash in Lincolnshire is urging people to take part in a charity abseil to raise money for first responders LIVES, who saved her life.

Lucy Bucknall broke her lower neck and pelvis in three places after the horror crash near Market Rasen back in 2012.

She was stuck in her car for around two hours while fire crews cut her out and a LIVES volunteer first responder kept her calm and stable during the horrifying ordeal.

By way of thanks to the first responders, Lucy has teamed up with the DoubleTree by Hilton in Lincoln and LIVES to give people the chance to abseil down the building on September 2.

Lucy said: “I am forever in their debt, nothing I do or say will ever be enough to thank them for what they did for me on that horrific day.

“I live in a rural area, so the LIVES responders are a vital member of the community.

“I think anyone thinking about supporting LIVES, whatever it may be, please don’t hesitate.

“The work LIVES do is second to none; they are simply amazing, saving lives on a daily basis.

“Any amount, large or small, will go to help support their work and in turn, carry on saving lives.”

LIVES has to raise just over £1 million to keep its 700+ responders on the road so that they can help more than 20,000 people each year.
