Following the Broadband Summit meeting, Dr Dan was delighted to visit a team of dedicated East Anglian Ambulance technicians from East Suffolk who has come together to create a "naked" fundraising calendar, in memory of their dear friend and colleague, Gary Smithen. Gary sadly lost his fight against cancer earlier this year, whilst still in service, and colleagues wanted a way of remembering Gary whilst raising money for his chosen charities.

Dr Dan wishes the team every success with their fundraising efforts.
