Community First Responders (CFRs) in Much Wenlock are delighted with their brightly coloured new vehicle, which has been funded by donations from local businesses and individuals. CFR Robin Bennett says the response to the appeal has been fantastic: “I’d really like to thank the individuals, organisations and businesses who have donated.
“Chris Foster from Wenlock Motors supplied the car and has also agreed to service and maintain it for nothing; Twenty Twenty gallery were one of the first to donate, and Wenlock Pharmacy, Ryan’s Butchers, the Forester Charitable Trust have all been supportive, as have paramedic Colin Marlow, Cllr David Turner, Holly and Jane Eastham and everyone else who’s helped out or donated on our Just Giving site (search for Wenlock Ambulance Car) – and we still need donations to keep the service running, so please don’t stop giving!”
Meanwhile, a Bridgnorth CFR has earned recognition at the West Midlands Ambulance Service Awards. Martin Hill was recognised for his work with the service for over 10 years
