Medic's life-saving stories

French-born Magen David Adom paramedic Sarah Cascella has been recounting life-saving moments during a speaking tour of northern England.

Manchester communal organisations and the Leeds, Liverpool and Glasgow representative councils hosted Ms Cascella, 26. She also met Leeds couple Pam and Philip Glynn, who raised almost £2,000 for MDA as part of their golden wedding celebrations, and addressed 200 Christian Friends of MDA in Bolton at a ceremony marking the dedication of their second ambulance.

Regional MDA director Richard Simon said the visit had been organised “to raise our profile in the major cities. It has been extremely successful.”
