A statement from the LIVES Clinical Director reads:
It is with great sadness that I have to mark the sad death of one of our LIVES Responders, Ken Smith.
Ken was tragically killed in a road collision on Friday, 17th July on the A153 between Sleaford and Ancaster whilst off duty. Our heartfelt condolences go out to Ken’s family and friends, but also to the Heckington group of which he was such an integral part.
Ken was a well-known face around the organisation, with over five years as a Responder attending over 800 calls in that time, and a group trainer for Heckington. He had recently achieved his Level 4 and has made a massive contribution to the well being of his local community.
On behalf of the LIVES Trustees, HQ staff and all our Responders I would like to send our deepest sympathies to Ken’s family for their loss. A true gentleman, a beacon of everything we do as Responders, and a man who “made a difference”.
May he rest in peace.
We can never replace Ken, but the Heckington LIVES group do urgently need volunteers to come forward & help our group respond to future calls.
