The SP Poem - National Poetry Day

The SP Poem - National Poetry Day

28th September was National Poetry Day. our customers at SP Services are a talented bunch so we asked them to come up with a poem about us.

National Poetry Day is an initiative of the Forward Arts Foundation, a charity that celebrates excellence in poetry and widens its audience.

Congratulations to our winner Luke McConnell.

We hope you like his poem as much as we do.

Come on down and visit SP, 

Where you can pick up a defib or 3. 
From bag valve masks to plasters and more,
There’s bound to be something for you in store.
Whether fully fledged medic or simple first aider,
Grab your kit for cuts or dealing with labour.
So get yourself down there and see what you’ll find,
Medical kits a plenty, of every kind!

Luke said "I saw the poem competition on Facebook whilst sat outside my tent on a camping trip eating breakfast. I thought I’d give it a go and came up with it just off the top of my head in about 5 minutes. I never thought I’d win it though. I bought my very first stethoscope from SP 10 years ago when I first joined the Ambulance Service in Kent. I’m no longer in green but instead in blue and work in a Minor Injury Unit. I still use SP for anything medical as they are reputable and good value. I think that’s important when you need bits of kit that have to do such a tough job!"

Steve Bray, SP's Managing Director said "We like to have a bit of fun with our customers and we know we have some really talented people out there. This poem though really touched me, I think this is a new first for me and I was really blown away by Luke's poem. We had lots of great entries but Luke was a clear winner."
