From Mr & Mrs Lane regarding our work at Havering Athletics Club:

"We just wanted to thank your first aiders for helping our daughter on Saturday when she injured herself hurdling. They were so kind, professional and helpful. They really helped calm a frightening experience and we are ever so grateful. We would really appreciate it if you were able to pass on our thanks and gratitude. We spent a long 8.5 hrs to be seen at A and E, but all was as well as it could be and she has a hip sprain, which we hope will heal fully in time."
