MARK Worthing, MARS Trustee, joined the Bowls Herefordshire ladies at Burghill Golf Club recently, where they were celebrating another successful year.

President Sandra of Bowls Herefordshire presented Mark with a cheque for £500 for MARS.

The money was raised through two bowling events, Sandra's Presidents Day and a mixed match with the Herefordshire men.

MARS (Mercia Accident Rescue Service) is a registered charity which exists in order to deliver enhanced immediate medical care to the people of Herefordshire and Worcestershire.

MARS is a group of highly trained and experienced pre-hospital practitioners: currently 11 doctors, two advanced clinical practitioners.

The team's activity covers the two counties of Herefordshire and Worcestershire.

MARS provides the organisational framework within which practitioners can continue to be properly trained and equipped and all of this is supported by local fundraising.
