Thank You From Us All

Recently, a gentleman was taken ill during an event here at Lincoln Drill Hall.  Despite expert attention from the ambulance paramedic team and two nurses who happened to be present that evening, he very sadly passed away in hospital.  Our thoughts and deepest sympathies are of course with his family at this very difficult time, and we would very much like to thank those who helped for their assistance and pay tribute to them for their care and professionalism.

This sad incident has highlighted the need to be prepared for every eventuality and therefore we felt it was important to obtain a defibrillator. Lincoln Drill Hall is a charity run venue and therefore crowd funding was the best way to raise the required funds quickly; we want to say a huge thank you to everyone who donated and shared the campaign. Thanks to the exceptional generosity of our supporters, patrons, local businesses, members of the community and staff, we have reached our fundraising target. The defibrillator’s now in place and we’ve had very kind offers from local medical professionals for extensive training.

Whilst our staff are regularly first aid trained, we firmly believe that a defibrillator will help to ensure that our customers will have access to the very best care possible in the event of an emergency.  We’re pleased that Lincoln now has one more.

We’re going to be inviting staff from local businesses and our fellow venues to come and share in the training so that everyone can benefit from this.  If you’re interested in receiving the training, please contact us.

Thank you once again for your donations. We truly appreciate your support.
