Thursday 7th May 2015 – 10am – Chris Kowalik.
Volunteer lifesavers in Redditch are appealing for your vote to help them buy new defibrillators.
The town’s Community First Responders (CFRs) have been shortlisted for the Aviva Community Fund and they need your votes to win £10,000
Community First Responders are members of the public trained by West Midlands Ambulance in a variety of assessments and treatments. They all carry a defibrillator, a device that could restart the heart of someone who suffers a cardiac arrest. They may be called to attend a medical emergency while a blue-light ambulance service vehicle is en-route.
If they win the £10,000 they will spend it on replacing their defibrillators for newer models.
To vote for Redditch Community First Responders, visit https://community-fund.aviva.co.uk/voting/project/view/1793 . You can vote up to ten times. Voting closes at the end of May.
