Steyning First Responders Presentation
On the 13th April President John Dibb presented representatives of the Steyning First Responders Team with a cheque for £1000. The picture shows Team Leader Christine Peters accepting the cheque and Responder Alison Law, both of whom have recently received 10 year Long Service Awards from the South East Coast Ambulance Trust .
It is over 10 years since our Club founded the First Responders, and each year we have donated to them the lions share of the proceeds from our annual Race Night. The remainder goes to other local charities.
As the title suggests, the First Responders aim to speedily reach the location of an emergency, and assess and treat the problem until an ambulance arrives. There is a constant need for funds to replace equipment and run the service.
