Sainsbury’s in Bridgnorth supports local lifesavers

Friday 31st July 2015 – 1.45pm – Chris Kowalik.

 

A supermarket in Shropshire has chosen its local group of volunteer lifesavers as its charity of the year.

Bridgnorth and District Community First Responder Scheme will benefit from the town’s Sainsbury’s store’s fundraising for the year and it begins today.

Members of the team are in the main entrance to the store in High Town raising funds for the next three days.

Community First Responders come from all walks of life and are trained by West Midlands Ambulance Service in a number of assessments and treatments. They may be called upon to attend a local medical emergency while a blue-light ambulance vehicle is en-route.

More information about Bridgnorth Community First Responders can be found on the group’s facebook page: www.facebook.com/bridgnorthcommunityfirstresponders
