Mark Wright, Paramedic, Trustee of OurBlueLight, Blue Light Champion & Peer Supporter.
I have been a member of the Ambulance Service for over 15 years. After being injured during an incident, I realised how much my colleagues needed supporting in their work, and I became involved with OurBlueLight.
I helped to plan “The First Steps” of the OurBlueLight Walk in2016 and organised the Yorkshire leg of the OurBlueLight Torch Relay in 2017. During these events, I was both humbled and inspired by the many members of the Emergency Services, Volunteer Rescue Services and Essential Services that I met.
