A MEDICAL charity with strong links to Solihull has appointed a new chairman.
Peter Armitage, a former registered nurse has been elected to take over the helm of the charity which donates life-saving vehicles and equipment to community first responders across the region.
Peter received an MBE for his services to the community and to charitable causes and earlier this year he was awarded an Member of The Most Venerable Order of the Hospital of St. John of Jerusalem (MstJ) for his services to St John Ambulance.
He said: “I am incredibly honoured to be elected as Chairman of Arrive Alive. I have been a proud Trustee of Arrive Alive from the very beginning of the charity funding vehicles and equipment for CFR’s who support West Midlands Ambulance Service.
“I am truly humbled to be given the opportunity as chairman of such a unique lifesaving charity, I look forward to supporting Arrive Alive in its future endeavours.”
The charity was founded by a Birmingham based Mother Debbie Roscoe following her daughters illness.
