Lee-on-the-Solent Community First Responders raise Â£1,600 for equipment
TWO charity events have raised more than Â£1,500 to support volunteers giving life-saving first aid.
The Lee-on-the-Solent Community First Responders organised the events to raise money for their equipment.
The group are on-call to attend medical emergencies throughout Gosport. They are often first on the scene to administer first aid before paramedics arrive.
One of the events was a race night at Leon’s Bistro, in Lee-on-the-Solent, which was attended by 75 people including first responders, employees from South Central Ambulance Service and borough councillors.
The night had live music, a meal provided by Leon’s Bistro and races as well as a prize draw. It raised £1,342.
A second fundraiser was held at the Eagle Pub, in Gosport, where families enjoyed a fun day.
There were games for children, pool and dart tournaments and a raffle. The event raised £342.
