When Martine spoke to our staff about how they saved her life on 7 July 2005 it was extremely heartfelt. She spoke with genuine emotion, and tailored what she said to fit in with the theme of our event. Martine had a real connection with the audience and what she said was incredibly inspiring and truly deserved the standing ovation she received. Martine was extremely generous with her time, chatting to staff and was very approachable. She helped to make the evening very special and one that ambulance staff will remember.
