Car Wash for Community First Responders

The recently formed Community First Responders are gaining fantastic support from the community and at the end of the month the Milford Car Wash are donating £1 for every car washed from Monday 27th March, until Friday 31st March 2017.

The New Forest Yokels will follow this up with a fundraising gig at the White Horse on Saturday 1st April (7.30pm). Click here for more details.

About the Milford on Sea Community Responders

Milford on Sea now has a newly established Community First Responders group.

The Community First Responders support the South Central Ambulance Service and get deployed to appropriate emergency calls in the village. All are volunteers who donate their time and expertise for free. The group has been founded by Ross Woolgar, Terri Newton and Conrad Curtis.

The advantage of Community First Responders is that in many cases they can get there before the paramedics and commence life saving emergency treatment at the earliest opportunity, which significantly improves patients chances of survival.

The lifesaving kit they carry is rather expensive and because of this can't be funded by South Central Ambulance Service so, currently, the three medics are sharing one set of kit which has kindly been lent to them by the Ringwood Community First Responder team. The objective is of course, for each first responder to have their own kit.

The Milford on Sea teams first priority therefore, is to raise enough cash, somewhere between £5k to £10k initially, to fund their own kit to make sure they are able to help everyone in the village if ever needed.

If anyone is generous enough to make a donation, the sooner the money is raised, the sooner a full service will be available. Every little you could contribute would help - To donate please click here.

  1. In this day and age of internet banking, would it be possible for the charity's bank sort code and account number to be published so that donators can pay directly into its' account? This will be 100% funding with no commission to Just Giving.
