Much Wenlock Community First Responders Launch Defibrillator Campaign

Tuesday 17th December 2013 – 1.15pm – Chris Kowalik.

Much Wenlock Community First Responders Robin Bennett and Colin Marlow have launched a fundraising campaign to buy additional emergency medical equipment for the town.

Community First Responders (CFRs) are volunteers trained by West Midlands Ambulance Service to give assistance in “999” medical emergencies until an ambulance arrives. One of their key roles is in cardiac arrests where the early use of a defibrillator can be lifesaving. Robin & Colin are aiming to raise the £3,000 needed to buy a public-access defibrillator for the town as well as an additional unit for their own use when on call.

Robin, said “The Town Council are fully behind our campaign and local businesses too have pledged their financial support. We were so pleased when Paddy Ryan (pictured) was the first to offer his support and we’re really grateful for his help in getting the campaign off the ground.”
