Steve W

Our fantastic Peterborough colleague Steve Wainwright reached 100 community engagement events for EEAST this week.

Over the last seven years, Steve has put hundreds of hours into these events and met thousands of people throughout the community.

He is an emergency medical technician, and has visited schools, Scout groups, Girl Guide groups and careers events to name just a few.

On Wednesday, he marked his 100th event by visiting Old Fletton Primary School - where he started his engagement programme seven years ago! Steve was presented with an engraved Trust shield to recognise this amazing achievement.

Luke Squibb, EEAST’s General Manger for North Cambridgeshire, said: “I was lucky enough to witness Steve deliver his talk where he had two reception classes fully engaged and listening to his every word. I am sure he has inspired many youngsters to enjoy the ambulance service and has been able to explain everything to them in great detail.”

Although he has reached 100th visits and will now be taking a step back, Steve will still be involved with supporting the focus on community engagement with colleagues.
