6 February 2017 - Pandamedic makes special visit to preston school

Christmas card competition winnerNorth West Ambulance Service (NWAS) took part in a special school assembly at St Andrew's CE Primary school to celebrate the winner of its design a Christmas card competition.

Six year old Daisy Rosenheck created the winning design and was presented with a £50 voucher and NWAS goodie bag by NWAS mascot Pandamedic.

At the assembly Paramedic Cheryl Pickstock also talked to the children about when it’s right to call 999 – a key part of the Trust’s #MakeTheRightCall awareness campaign.

Sharon Rosenheck is Daisy’s mum and works at the Royal Preston hospital. She said: “Daisy was so excited about winning the competition was really looked forward to meeting Pandamedic and getting her prize and goody bag in school assembly. We were there on the day to watch the presentation and she told me she had the best time ever and was very popular at playtime!”

Explaining how they found out about the competition, Sharon said: “One of my work colleagues saw the link on Facebook and forwarded it onto me as she knows how much Daisy likes art competitions. I thought it would be a lovely competition to enter as everyone knows how hard people at the ambulance service work.”

Derek Cartwright, NWAS Chief Executive, chose the winning design. He said: “Thank you so much to everyone that took the time to draw, colour and paint, we were really overwhelmed with all the fantastic entries we received, there are a lot of amazing young artists out there!”
