Telford & Wrekin Community First Responder (CFR) scheme, a registered charity, was presented with a cheque from the Ironbridge Lodge in Broseley on Monday 4th March.

There are 23 active members of the Telford & Wrekin scheme, all trained by West Midlands Ambulance Service to a nationally recognised standard in a variety of skills and techniques including basic life support, CPR and defibrillation. They can be sent by the ambulance service’s control room to medical emergencies in their area while an ambulance resource is en-route.

Scheme co-ordinator Steve Brown said: “We were delighted they raised so much money for us. It was a nice surprise. It was good to see the community helping us. The money will go towards a new response vehicle.”

Got to Sing

Shropshire comes alive with the sound of music!

It has been said that group singing is cheaper than therapy, healthier than drinking, and certainly more fun than working out.
