New wheels sought

Much Wenlock Community First Responders (CFRs) are raising funds to update their well-loved ambulance car. CFR regular Robin Bennett explains, “After more than 1,500 hours of duty, it’s time to retire the old Much Wenlock Ambulance Response Car and replace it with a new one.

“Our 4×4 response car has been invaluable in reaching patients quickly, even in the worst winter weather. It’s helped us reach patients in cardiac arrest and casualties at road traffic collisions in snow and ice. The old car has served us well but is showing its age – the new one will help us to keep delivering this vital local service.”

Community First Responders are volunteers trained by West Midlands Ambulance Service to treat patients in 999 medical emergencies until an ambulance arrives. Since raising the funds for the original car, the town’s CFRs have used it to get crucial help to hundreds of patients in and around Wenlock. If you are able to help by donating or holding a fundraising event, contact Robin on 07971 696157 or visit
