Lucas Artiss raised the money by walking 30,000 steps a day in March and was treated to a paramedic workshop at the University of Lincoln for all his hard work.
12-year-old Lucas from Gainsborough went on to triple his initial target of £500 with the help of supporters on his JustGiving page.
The workshop was held at the University of Lincoln and Lucas was able to work with paramedic students who taught him all about the life of a trainee paramedic.
“I’m enjoying it a lot,” said Lucas. “I’ve been working in different scenarios with dummies.
“I’ve wanted to be a paramedic for a year or two now. Today I’ve gained medical skills, how it feels and how quickly you have to react to things.”
Lucas’ mum Julie said: “He did absolutely amazing in March. He walked 412 miles, which is the equivalent of walking to Portsmouth and back.”
Lucas got stuck in with a training exercise, where the students practised on a dummy in a scenario where it had fallen from a building.
Jonathan Chippindale, 47, is a senior lecturer in Paramedic Science and was leading the workshop.
He says Lucas is on the right track to become a paramedic.
“He’s had a real baptism of fire. These students have had 18 months of teaching under their belts and around 700 hours on placement in a real ambulance. Lucas had half an hour to familiarise himself with the kit and the students helped him through.
“He’s done astoundingly well. He contributed to patient assessment and patient care.
“We’re saving him a place for in 6 years’ time. He knows what grades he needs to get, so I look forward to receiving his application.”
The Ambulance Staff Charity was launched in 2015 to support the mental, physical and financial wellbeing of the people in the UK’s ambulance services.
Jasmin Rana, TASC’s Director of Income Generation and Supporter Engagement, said:
“We are so proud of Lucas for completing his exhausting challenge, but the effort has been truly worth it as he managed to smash not one, but two of his fundraising targets to raise over £1,500 for TASC.
“Ambulance staff have one of the most stressful jobs in the UK, and the continuing and long-term impacts of Coronavirus are making their job that much harder.
“At TASC we’re passionate about supporting the mental, physical and financial wellbeing of the UK’s lifesavers, but we can only do this with the help of kind-hearted and generous people like Lucas.
“We are so grateful to Lucas for his support.”
