8:00am Monday 23rd September 2013 in News
HAGLEY rotarians have donated £1,000 to volunteers who provide lifesaving treatment to people across the Black Country.
The Community First Responders of Fastaid Black Country were the chosen charity of outgoing president David Santus.
Volunteers, who are trained by West Midlands Ambulance Service, respond to emergency 999 calls and deliver basic life support and defibrillation to patients in cardiac arrest, prior to the arrival of ambulance crews.
Explaining why he chose the to support the volunteers, Mr Santus said: “I chose this charity as I wanted the money from my president’s charity fund to have an impact on the people in our local community.”
Community responder Richard Smith who received the cheque on behalf of the volunteers added: “This donation is brilliant news for the charity and will allow us in partnership with the Rotary Club to recruit more responders for the Hagley area.”
Both the Rotary Club of Hagley and Fastaid Black Country are looking for new members.
