Ettington CFR team are delighted to announce a substantial donation from Wellesbourne & District Lions Club. Roy Egerton, Secretary of Wellesbourne & District Lions Club presented a cheque for £250 to Sarah Neale of Ettington First Responder Team.
Roy said; “Wellesbourne & District Lions Club is delighted to support this important, new initiative in Ettington”.
Sarah said; “The Ettington CFR team would like to sincerely thank Wellesbourne & District Lions Club for this kind donation.
We are in the process of equipping a third team member and this is a costly exercise. The CFR Scheme is part of West Midlands Ambulance Service and, although they provide all our training and some medical supplies, we receive no direct funding from the Ambulance Service. As such, we rely entirely on donations and fundraising. To get the first two team members equipped, we’ve had to buy a number of items from our own pockets pending the scheme funds building up from donations and fundraising events. The donation from Wellesbourne & District Lions Club will make a massive difference”.
