Representatives from the Air Ambulance Service and St John Ambulance attended Saturday’s game against Wycombe Wanderers to receive the proceeds of a collection made at the Notts County match.

A total of £3,700 was raised, meaning that each organisation received £1,850.

The collection was organised by the Community Trust in recognition of the life-saving efforts of both organisations during the game against Lincoln City.

Season ticket holder Alec Freeman received CPR from St John Ambulance first-aider Carol Crompton after collapsing in the East Stand before being taken by Air Ambulance to a hospital in Derby.

Club officials were delighted to welcome Alec as a guest on Saturday and he enjoyed an emotional reunion with Carol in the Brampton Brewery 1866 Lounge before the game.

“Meeting Carol was very emotional,” said Alec. “It’s hard to say how thankful I am to Carol for what she did for me. Saying ‘thank you’ just doesn’t seem enough.”

Carol’s life-saving contribution saw her presented with an Award of Merit by the club, handed over by Alec.
