Hertfordshire life savers jump for joy at charity event

Date: 01 February 2017

Roebuck Primary School

A primary school in Stevenage have raised more than £600 at a charity event recently for one of our Community First Responder (CFR) groups.

Roebuck Primary school, in Stevenage, hosted a bouncy castle fundraising event last week, where the pupils were sponsored to bounce as many times as possible. We are thrilled to say that all proceeds are going towards the purchase of state of the art lifesaving equipment for the CFR group.

CFR coordinator Terence Salter said: "I think it's a fantastic idea, something which we are so grateful for. This money will allow us to have a second kit, which means our team will be able to respond to more calls in our community."

Terence said: "It's a fantastic scheme to be involved with, where you can make a real difference in the community. I would encourage anyone to get involved, so they can start saving lives." He added: "My thanks to fellow CFR Rhiannon Fraser for all of her efforts in arranging this event, not only will we as a group benefit from it but the people of Stevenage will too."
