An emergency volunteer from Sandy has been awarded £250 worth of free car parts from GSF to help him get his Land Rover Discovery responder vehicle back on the road.

As a volunteer blue light responder and 4x4 national responder for the past five years, Matt Walker’s 20-year-old Discovery attends vehicle breakdowns and major incidents caused by extreme weather conditions.

Matt said: “The Discovery has more than 200,000 miles on the clock, but as a response vehicle it’s invaluable.

“It has been off the road for a while, but with the parts I’ve won from GSF it can take its MOT and respond to emergencies again. I can also use it to teach my kids how to drive.”
