Founded in 2001 following the death of 14-year-old Sandy Dickson in a tragic accident, The Sandpiper Trust provides emergency life-saving medical equipment within “Sandpiper Bags” to rural clinicians. These bags enable pre-hospital emergency care to be provided in situations where ambulance response time is long, or where the skills of a doctor are required alongside those of ambulance paramedics. Sandpiper also provides responders with the technology to connect them to the Scottish Ambulance Service dispatch system. Since 2001, Sandpiper has sent out more than 1250 bags and saved countless lives. A registered charity, Sandpiper exists entirely on personal donations and fundraising. They receive no government, NHS or local authority funding. Each year across Scotland, Sandpiper BASICS Responders attend thousands of calls as tasked through the Scottish Ambulance Service

Ring us at the office on 01796-481-543 with your card details and we will charge you the face value of £5 (unless you wish to donate more to benefit The Sandpiper Trust!) That will include your P&P, as well as a £2.50 contribution to The Sandpiper Trust. For more information on The Sandpiper Trust please visit
